Daily walking in older adults: Day-to-day variability and criterion-referenced validity of total daily step counts

Rowe, D.A. and Kemble, Charles D. and Robinson, Terrance S. and Mahar, Matthew T. (2007) Daily walking in older adults: Day-to-day variability and criterion-referenced validity of total daily step counts. Journal of Physical Activity and Health, 4 (4). pp. 434-446. ISSN 1543-3080

Abstract

Aims to determine the day-to-day variability of older adults'physical activity, and to evaluate the accuracy of the 10,000-step goal for classifying whether older adults obtain 30 minutes of MVPA. Concludes that day-to-day variability in physical activity is lower in older adults than other age groups. The 10,000-step goal is inadequate for determining whether daily physical activity includes 30 minutes of MVPA in this population.
