  1. Adjusted odds means that they are entered into a regression model together and all the variables are therefore adjusted for the other variables in the model.
  2. Factors no longer related to walking to school included: ethnic group, health of parent, smoking near child, Bracken School Readiness Score, Strengths and Difficulties score, watching TV, living in a good area to raise a child, age of parent, playing physically active games, sex ratio, BMI of primary carer.
