Measures Registry

The Measures Registry is a searchable database of diet and physical activity measures relevant to childhood obesity research. Its purpose is to standardize use of common measures and research methods across childhood obesity research at the individual, community, and population levels.

Measures are tools and methodologies used to assess individuals' diet, physical activity, and the environments in which these behaviors occur. Examples of measures include questionnaires, instruments, diaries, logs, electronic devices, direct observations of people or environments, protocols, and analytic techniques.
