General Information
Measure Name: Social Support and Exercise (Modified Sallis)
Measure Type: Scale
Construct: Social Support (support from social network)
Primary Content Area: Physical Activity
Secondary Content Area: Obesity
Brief Description: Originally, published in 1987, the purpose of the study was to develop measures of perceived social support and exercise behaviors (and a separate survey for social support specific to health-related eating). In Study I, specific supportive and nonsupportive behaviors were identified through interviews with 40 individuals making health-behavior changes. In Study II, items derived from the interviews were administered to 171 subjects.

Later, the initial 29 item survey (available in reference), was shortened to the 13 item survey provided here. The abbreviated survey was designed to be easier to use than the original, complete scale reported in Preventive Medicine (see reference tab).
