Correction: Expected values for pedometer-determined physical activity in older populations


Correction to Tudor-Locke C, Hart TL, Washington TL: Expected values for pedometer-determined physical activity in older populations. International Journal of Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity 2009, 6:59


After publication of this work [1], we noted that some of the reference numbers in Additional file 1 were incorrect [2-29]. Here we provide the correct table and new reference list.
