This questionnaire measures a lot of time spent on physical activity at work, travel (transportation) and also free time in one week which is then converted into units of metabolic equivalents (METs). These METs scores were then categorized to be quite physically active (METs ≥ 600) or less physically active (METs <600).

Statistical anlysis revealed that male, friends support and low perceived barriers were the factors influenced sufficient physical activity of office workers.
