NCCOR Launches Measures Registry User Guides
The National Collaborative on Childhood Obesity Research (NCCOR) has launched four Measures Registry User Guides to help childhood obesity researchers and practitioners choose appropriate measures for their research and evaluation efforts. The four User Guides focus on core areas of childhood obesity research: individual diet, food environment, individual physical activity, and physical activity environment.
The User Guides were created through a two-year grant from The JPB Foundation, NCCOR’s first strategic alliance partner. The project represents a continued commitment to encourage consistent use of high-quality, comparable measures and research methods across childhood obesity prevention research and evaluation efforts focused on diet and physical activity.
The User Guides build on NCCOR’s Measures Registry—a free, online repository of scientific articles about measures—widely recognized as a key resource that gives researchers and practitioners access to detailed information on measures in one easy-to-search location.
