Abstract Introduction:<\b>
The original Children’s Sport Participation and Physical Activity Study (CSPPA) examined the levels of physical activity (PA), including sedentary behaviour, in Irish children and youth. Based on previously acquired subjective data from Irish children and youth (n=5,397, 13.8 (±2) years), primary school children spent much less time sitting, than their post-primary school counterparts. The aim of this study is to employ a gold-standard objective measure of sedentary behaviour, specifically to determine if objectively measured sedentary time is linked to adverse health markers. Methods:<\b>
A sub-sample (n=200-400) of the original schools will be re-visited to obtain objective measures of sedentary behaviour and physical health (body mass index, blood pressure and cardiorespiratory fitness). Participants will wear an activPAL3 Micro for seven consecutive days to determine habitual sedentary behaviour. Linear regression analysis will be employed to examine the influence of sedentary behaviour and markers of physical health. Data collection will run from February 2018 – June 2018. Multiple linear regression analysis will be used to determine the association between objectively measured sedentary time and physical health measures, adjusting for appropriate confounding variables. Conclusion:<\b>
The subjective measures of sedentary behaviour from the original CSPPA will be further expanded, which will allow for investigation to determine if the difference between primary and post-primary school children exist when a gold standard of objective sedentary behaviour measurement is employed. In addition, the link between sedentary behaviour and markers of physical health in this cohort will also be explored. External funding details Sport IrelandHealthy Ireland
