Behavioral Intentions (behavior-specific)

Measure Definition:

Measures of this construct will vary depending on the target behavior.  Thus, investigators will need to identify a measure that is appropriate for the behavior of interest (please see the construct page for further discussion of this issue). Two example measures (one for exercise and one for fruit and vegetable consumption) are available in GEM and can be accessed using the links below. 



Construct Definition (and Source):
