Longitudinal changes in submaximal oxygen uptake in to year-olds. According to its author, RPE scores correlate well with both physiological measures of stress and arousal eg, HR, ventilatory threshold, blood lactate and creatinine concentration as well as psychological measures of exhaustion.

This table, based on the research of Gunnar Borg from Stockholm University, is handy for quantifying the intensity of exercise. This is in contrast with previous reports in the literature.

The sensitivity and reproducibility of the results are broadly very similar, although the Borg may outperform the Likert scale in some cases.
