The Lifetime Physical Activity Questionnaire (LTPAQ) is an interviewer-administered questionnaire used to estimate a respondent’s physical activity done from childhood to the present. It was developed by Dr Christine Friedenreich and tested for reliability [1]. It is administered using recall calendars and cognitive interviewing methods and includes all domains of physical activity (occupational, household, recreational and transportation) as well as all parameters of physical activity (frequency, duration and intensity).
