Analyzing NHANES Accelerometer Data:
SAS code is now available for analyzing Actigraph 7164 Physical Activity Monitor (PAM)
data from the 2003-2004 National Health and Nutrition
Examination Survey (NHANES). These programs are written to import and analyze
accelerometer data downloaded from the National
Center for Health Statistics (NCHS).
If you wish to use these programs with data downloaded directly from Actigraph 7164
accelerometers used in a different study, then you must first convert the data into the
appropriate format and merge the records from multiple accelerometers.
