Table 4 Construct validity of Hausa IPAQ-SF (N = 102)

From: The short international physical activity questionnaire: cross-cultural adaptation, validation and reliability of the Hausa language version in Nigeria

Hausa IPAQ Construct measure ρ
Vigorous PA (Min week-1) Cardiorespiratory fitness (RPP) -0.08
Moderate PA (Min week-1) Cardiorespiratory fitness (RPP) -0.09
Walking (Min week-1) Cardiorespiratory fitness (RPP) -0.05
Total PA (MET-Min week-1) Cardiorespiratory fitness (RPP) -0.02
Time spent sitting (Min week-1) Cardiorespiratory fitness (RPP) 0.21**
Vigorous PA (Min week-1) BMI (Kg m-2) -0.16
Moderate PA (Min week-1) BMI (Kg m-2) 0.22*
Walking (Min week-1) BMI (Kg m-2) 0.05
Total PA (MET-Min week-1) BMI (Kg m-2) 0.18
Time spent sitting (Min week-1) BMI (Kg m-2) -0.09
  1. ρ _Spearman correlation coefficient between time spent in Physical Activity from the Hausa IPAQ-SF and Cardiorespiratory fitness and BMI
  2. RPP - Rate Pressure Product, BMI - Body Mass Index
  3. PA = Physical Activity
  4. Min = Minutes
  5. MET = Metabolic Energy Turnover
  6. *, p < 0.05; **, p < 0.01
