The following table shows indicative numbers for the Physical activity level for several lifestyles:
|Moderate activity: standing jobs with some walks||1.8|
|Very active: walking job||2.0|
|Extremely active: active job with lots of sport||2.2+|
The Physical activity level can also be estimated based on a list of the (physical) activities people perform from day to day. Each activity is connected to a number, the Physical activity ratio. The Physical activity level is then the time-weighted average of the Physical activity ratios. The following calculator contains a form that computes the Physical activity level based on a list of daily activities with their Physical activity ratios.
