Sitting time at work on a workday measured by the WSQ showed a low correlation for all participants and by gender groups with accelerometer sedentary time at work (r=0.38–0.45)
During the last 7 days, please estimate how much time you usually spend SITTING
in each of the following activities on a WORKING day and a NON-WORKING day:
(please write your answers in the spaces provided) a) for transport (e.g., in car, bus, train, etc) b) at work (e.g., sitting at a desk or using a computer) c) watching TV d) using a computer at home (e.g., email, games, informaiton, chatting) e) other leisure activities (e.g., socialising, movies etc but NOT including TV or computer us) Additiona item required to calculate average total sitting time: during the last 7 days, how many days were you at work? __ days
Hours and/or minutes during a working day and a non-working day
WSQ sitting time in all domains on a workday and non-workday had weak to low associations with accelerometer sedentary time data in both women and men (r=0.18–0.34). Occupational: r = 0.45, p<0.01; Total all domains workday: r = 0.34, p<0.01; Total all domains non-workday: r = 0.23, <0.05; Average total work and non-workdays: r = 0.40, p<0.01
When all domains were summed to assess total sitting on a workday, non-workday and average per day, test–retest reliability was good to excellent with ICCs of 0.65–0.80 for all participants. Women had excellent test–retest reliability for reporting their total sitting time (ICC=0.77–0.90), whereas men had fair to good reliability (ICC=0.46–0.75). Workday: Transport: ICC = 0.67, 95% CI: 0.54, 0.77; Occupational: ICC = 0.63, 95% CI: 0.49, 0.74; TV: ICC = 0.91, 95% CI: 0.87, 0.94; Computer at home: ICC = 0.56, 95% CI: 0.40, 0.69; Other leisure activities: ICC = 0.68, 95% CI: 0.55, 0.78; Total: ICC = 0.65, 95% CI: 0.51, 0.75; Non-workday: Transport: ICC = 0.60, 95% CI: 0.45, 0.72; Occupational: ICC = 0.50, 95% CI: 0.33, 0.64; TV: ICC = 0.79, 95% CI: 0.69, 0.85; Computer at home: ICC = 0.81, 95% CI: 0.73, 0.87; Other leisure activities: ICC = 0.59, 95% CI: 0.44, 0.71; Total: ICC = 0.80, 95% CI: 0.72, 0.87; Lower reliability among men.

Results and from validation study: “Reliability coefficients were high for weekday sitting time at work, watching television, and using a computer at home (r = 0.84-0.78) but lower for weekend days across all domains (r = 0.23-0.74). Validity coefficients were highest for weekday sitting time at work and using a computer at home (r = 0.69-0.74).
