Welcome to the Diet, Anthropometry and Physical Activity (DAPA) Measurement Toolkit

The DAPA Measurement Toolkit is a free resource to assist researchers, public health professionals, and others to identify and use methods for the assessment of diet, anthropometry, and physical activity.

The Toolkit does not recommend or promote any specific method or instrument. Rather, it provides information for you to use and interpret existing data or to reach a decision on choosing methods that are fit for purpose when planning research. Find out more.

This version of the Toolkit includes a number of new features.

We welcome any comments and feedback on your experience of the Measurement Toolkit to dapa-toolkit@mrc‐epid.cam.ac.uk
