Nordic Monitoring of diet, physical activity and overweight: Validation of indicators
Nordic Council of Ministers, Nordic Council of Ministers Secretariat2012 (English)Book (Other academic)
In 2007, a Nordic working group was established with the aim to describe a future Nordic monitoring system on diet, physical activity and overweight. The monitoring system should be simple and at relatively low cost. Therefore it has been decided to conduct the moni-toring as a telephone interview. In 2009, the indicator questions were validated against an objective method (physical activity) or existing survey methods (diet) and the present report mainly describes the validation studies. On basis of the validation studies the working group suggests that the indicators are used in a future monitoring system. In 2011 and 2013 the first collection of data in all Nordic countries will take place.
