To propose an instrument to measure the amount of floor activities performed by an individual. A list of 12 questionnaires relating to floor activities is proposed. A cross-sectional survey of the response to the questionnaires was tried on 3 communities representing rural, urban and metropolitan areas. The total number of enrolled people was 733. The scores of the questionnaires were tested for statistical difference (p< 0.05) among the communities by Chi-square and ANOVA nonparametric tests. The total scores among the three communities were significantly different. The rural civilians achieved the highest score, whereas the metropolitan area had the lowest score. The proposed instrument measuring floor activities is able to discriminate the activities of civilians in rural, urban and metropolitan areas.
