This unit provides an overview of methods of measuring food intake, physical activity, energy expenditure and body composition at the individual and population level. Practical activities are undertaken to gain a strong understanding of issues in analysing and interpreting data relating to nutritional and physical activity status and body composition. The uses and limitations of each of the assessment methodologies are critically evaluated. Reference standards and Australian norms for nutrition, physical activity and anthropometry are examined. The interpretation of dietary, physical activity and body composition survey data is addressed along with an examination of the theory and practice of validation and measurement error.
