In the MONICA Augsburg study the relationship between physical activity at work, cardiovascular risk factors, incidence of fatal and non-fatal myocardial infarction (MI) and total mortality was investigated in employed men.
The MONICA Augsburg baseline survey of 1984/85 was designed as a cross-sectional study with follow-up.
Physical activity was determined in 45-64 year old men by interview (n=1074, 83.6%) and by a 7-day activity diary (n=797, 62.0%). Employed men were categorized into an active versus inactive group based on interview data on physical activity at work (PAW) which had been validated against the 7-day activity diary.
