The Minnesota LTPA Questionnaire measures leisure and household activity. Totally 63 activities are divided into 8 categories: walking and miscellaneous, conditioning exercise, water activities, winter activities, sports, lawn and garden activities, home repair activities, fishing and hunting, Frequency of the activities is assessed month-by-month, as “average numbers of times per month”. Each physical activity has its own intensity code (MET). The intensity code and the duration of exercise in minutes for a year results in an index expressed as MET x min x day-1
