Lifespan LTPA SOC NE

DOI

This survey was administered via telephone interviews to adult residents in the greater Phoenix Metro area in the fall of 2016. The purpose of the survey was to gather information about leisure time physical activity (LTPA) behaviors, perceptions of the neighborhood environment (defined as the area within a 10-15 minute walk from home), and sense of community. A quota sampling technique was performed using random digit dialing to identify a proportionate number of respondents in the age ranges 18-34, 35-49, 50-64, and 65+, resulting in a total sample of N = 597. The survey included scale items describing three latent constructs: LTPA, SOC, and NE as well as additional control variables. For information related to controls and question wording, see the included questionnaire.

Presence of Common Scales: LTPA items were adapted from the Neighborhood Physical Activity Questionnaire (Giles-Corti et al. 2006).Perceptions of NE were assessed using a modification of an existing scale: The Physical Activity Neighborhood Environment Scale (PANES/IPS) (Sallis et al. 2010).

SOC was measured using a scale developed by Wood and colleagues (2010). Full scale information can be found in questionnaire.
