Updated Data

The summary ambient light (lux) measures (i.e., PAXLXSH) previously included in the following Physical Activity Monitor (PAM) Minute Summary Files were erroneously described as the ‘sum’ of lux measures at the minute level whereas the values reported are the ‘mean’ lux measures for the minute. The files were updated with the variable PAXLXSH renamed as PAXLXMM and description corrected. No change was made to the data points reported. In addition, the descriptions for the codes associated with the quality check flags were also updated to clarify the data issues denoted by these flags.

The documentations for the following Physical Activity Monitor – Raw Data 80hz Files were updated to clarify the data issues described in the codes associated with the quality check flags. No change was made to the data points reported.

Updated Data

The following Ethylene Oxide datasets were updated to correct a systematic bias caused by a calibration error to the measurement of ethylene oxide (i.e., LBXEOA). An algebraic correction based on a regression equation was applied to the original LBXEOA values and released in these files. Please refer to the analytic notes in the documentations accompanying the datasets for more details. No other data points in these files were changed.
