Table 1 Latent classes derived from accelerometry among adults (n = 7931); NHANES 2003-2006

From: Physical activity and sedentary behavior patterns using accelerometry from a national sample of United States adults

     Weighted mean of average counts/minute, MVPA (minutes/day), or sedentary behavior (minutes/day)
