  1. Note: Model 1 includes only the sense of control, Model 2 adds the two school segregation measures, and Model 3 adds the remaining covariates from Model 5 in Table 2.
  2. 1Average of three automated sphygmomanometer readings.
  3. 2Average of three trials with a hand held dynamometer.
  4. 3Average of three trials with a hand held flow meter.
  5. 4Scores of 0 reflect unable to perform, and 1–4 reflect national quartile thresholds.
  6. 5Scores are the sum of scores on the gait speed, chair stands, and balance tests.
  7. * = p < .05; ** = p < .01; *** = p < .001.
