Abstract

The academic and programmatic interest on the theme of active transportation is growing globally, given its close relationship with current public health problems and its potential to contribute positively in crucial areas, such as transport, health and environment. However, most of the evidence about the theme has been developed in high-income countries, which have a distinct reality from that observed in the Brazilian metropolitan areas. A possible way to overcome this shortage would be search for additional sources of information for the study of active transport in Brazil, through the use of household travel surveys, traditionally developed by the transport sector. Therefore, the aim of our study will be to broaden the research of the active transportation in Brazil through the evaluation of household travel surveys data validity for that purpose. We will conduct a study to assess the concurrent validity of the estimate of active transportation time per person (walking and cycling) obtained from the questionnaire survey of the 2007 Sao Paulo metropolitan Area Household Travel, having as the reference method the combination of accelerometry with global positioning system. The project will last approximately 18 months, 10 to 12 months of preparation and data collection and 6 to 8 months for the analysis of data, disclosure of results and implementation of the workshop about the use of travel surveys data for the study of active transportation.
