How are the conversions calculated?

The step conversions used in the step converter tool are based on the Compendium of Physical Activities by Barbara Ainswoth, William Haskel et al. 

The Compendium originated from a need to provide consistency in assigning intensity levels of physical activity captured from questionnaires used in epidemiological studies.

The Compendium of Physical Activities has received widespread acceptance as a resource to estimate and classify the energy cost of physical activity, through comparing activities by their metabolic equivalent of task (METs) against a standard activity.
