Author(s): Zishan Khan Belim, Megha Sheth and Srishti Sharma

Abstract: Physical Activity Questionnaire for children (PAQ-C) is a reliable and valid tool that helps to measure physical activity in children. The purpose of the study was to translate, and find reliability and validity of the Gujarati version of PAQ-C. It was translated into Gujarati using forward-backward-forward method. Twenty children knowing English and Gujarati language completed the questionnaires. Concurrent validity was found by comparing both the versions. Mean total physical activity score for Gujarati version was 3.08±0.77 and English version was 2.93±0.73.Spearman’s correlation coefficient was used to assess the strength of association between both versions, ƥ=0.79, p<0.001. The reliability of the translated Gujarati version of PAQ-C questionnaire was found using Pearson’s correlation coefficients, r = 0.934. Gujarati version of PAQ-C has a good validity and reliability to be used in Gujarati elementary school for children aged 8–14 years from grade four to grade eight.
