Registry Development

The Measures Registry was developed by a collaborative team of NCCOR members, contractors, and academic experts. A summary of this process is given here and more complete details are available in this report, including the data abstraction form, search parameters, and coding decisions for describing measures.

In brief, the Measures Registry team searched bibliographic resources for peer-reviewed articles in four domains:

  1. Individual dietary behavior
  2. Individual physical-activity behavior
  3. Food environment
  4. Physical-activity environment

Selected articles deemed to contain measures in these domains were then summarized for entry into the searchable database.

The Registry is updated regularly.
