Published: 14 April 2022| Version 1 | DOI: 10.17632/rvyzmy88c5.1


This dataset contains records of an experimental research project (BioE5-CEIC 1586) on energetic expenditure of a simulated extractive foraging activity (digging out wooden stakes which simulated underground food resources) in a sample of 40 urban children and adolescents of both sexes, aged 8-14 years. The dataset also contains some anthropometrical and body composition data of the subjects. Metabolic rates were also recorded during the different tests, performed indoors, at the BioEnergy and Motion Lab (LabBioEM) of National Research Center on Human Evolution (CENIEH, Spain), and outdoors, in 2016 and 2017. The description of recorded variables are included in the data and document files.
