Abstract

Introduction: Given the wide range in prevalence of childhood obesity and its correlates around the world, ISCOLE was designed to examine the relationships among lifestyle, obesity and environmental measures in a multi-national sample of children. The primary aim of the International Study of Childhood Obesity, Lifestyle and the Environment (ISCOLE) is to determine the relationship between lifestyle characteristics and obesity in children, and to investigate the influence of behavioural settings and physical, social and policy environments on the observed relationships within and between countries.
