Abstract Introduction:<\b>
Adequate physical activity (PA) level in childhood may be essential for the prevention of the obesity and comorbidity in later life. However, there are few feasible and reliable questionnaires to assess physical activity in Spanish youth. Thus, we aimed to study the feasibility and reliability of the Youth Activity Profile (YAP) questionnaire in Spanish young people.Method: A total of 414 children (5-10 y) and 298 adolescents (from 12-18 y) completed twice a questionnaire separated 15-days. Feasibility was examined using an observational sheet. We examined the reliability of the 19-questions included in the questionnaire categorizing in 1) Activity at School (Questions 1-9), 2) Activity Out-of-School (Questions 10-14), and 3) Sedentary Habits (Questions 15-19). The test-retest reliability was calculated using the Weighted Kappa Coefficient (κ). Results:<\b>
Regarding the feasibility analysis, the participants understood the whole questionnaire and lasted 25 minutes (children) and 10 minutes (adolescents). In both children and adolescents, a low-to-very good reliability were displayed for Activity at School questions (κ:0.28-0.81 and κ:0.23-0.84), a low-to-good reliability for Activity Out-of-School questions (κ:0.29-0.43 and κ:0.43-0.62), and a low-to-good reliability for Sedentary Habits questions (κ:0.36-0.55 and κ:0.53-0.73). Conclusion:<\b>
The Spanish version of the YAP questionnaire is a feasible and reliable tool for assessing PA in Spanish children and adolescents. Future Spanish studies may use this tool to share a standardized measurement. External funding details Funding: This study was supported by the Spanish Ministry of Economy, Industry and Competitiveness [DEP2016-75598-R (MINECO/FEDER, UE), DEP2013-47540-R, and DEP2016-79512-R]
