Table 3 Media exposure in both high and low PPS groups vs. BID Scores.

From: Impact of today's media on university student's body image in Pakistan: a conservative, developing country's perspective

  Positive BID* Scores (n = 358) Negative BID Scores (n = 426) Chi Square Values§
Low Media Exposure 190 (53.0%)+ 68 (16.0%) Chi-square = 119.7
High Media Exposure 168 (47.0%) 358 (84.0%) p < 0.0001
In Low PPS ^ Group (n = 567)    
Low Media Exposure 134 (37.4%) 52 (12.2%) Chi-square = 77.7
High Media Exposure 123 (34.3%) 257 (60.3%) p < 0.0001
In High PPS Group (n = 217)    
Low Media Exposure 54 (15.1%) 18 (4.2%) Chi-square = 33.84
High Media Exposure 47 (13.1%) 99 (23.2%) p < 0.0001
  1. ^PPS = Peer pressure score
  2. *BID = Body Image Dissatisfaction Score.
  3. §Chi square test was applied here to find significant results showing that high media exposure correlates with negative BID scores. Yates corrected values were used for better accuracy.
  4. +The percentages are calculated by dividing the numbers by the totals of the BID groups
