The PACS-studies

Presentation of the research project on Physically Active Commuting in Greater Stockholm (PACS).

The PACS-studies are part of a multidisciplinary research project within the Research Unit for Movement, Health and Environment at the Åstrand Laboratory of The Swedish School of Sport and Health Sciences, GIH, in Stockholm, Sweden, see www.gih.se/mhe.

The studies involve both walking and cycling behaviours in inner urban and suburban – rural areas.

The general aims of the PACS studies project are to illuminate:

  1. what characterizes existing behavioural patterns connected to physically active commuting to work in Greater Stockholm
  2. which are the route environmental variables that can affect the appraisals of stimulating or inhibiting route environments for cycling and walking, as well as of safety and unsafety of traffic, and its relation to environmental well-being
  3. what characterizes the physiological demands for metabolism and oxygen uptake
  4. which are the potential effects of these forms of physical activity on the physical and psychological health and well-being, and
  5. to what extent are existing behavioural patterns applicable within the population in Greater Stockholm under existing and enhanced circumstances.
