Physical activity self-report methods are cost-effective and
straightforward to use with large samples, but their ability to accurately
estimate levels of physical activity is limited. This study describes the
development of algorithms to calibrate self-reported physical activity from
the online UK Youth Activity Profile (UKYAP) survey into estimates of
moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA) and sedentary time (ST)
