Compendium of physical activities: an update of activity codes and MET intensities. Med. Sci. Sports Exerc., Vol.32, No 9 , Suppl., pp. S498 - S516, 2000.

We provide an updated version of the Compendium of Physical Avctivities, a coding scheme that classifies specific physical activity (PA) by rate of energy expenditure. It was developed to enhance the ocomparability of results across studies using self-reports of PA. The Compendium coding scheme links a five-digit code thatdescribes physical activities by major headings (e.g. occupation, transportation, etc.) and specific activities within each major heading with its intensity, defined as the ratio of work metabolic rate to a standard resting metabolica rate (MET).
