Table 3 Baseline and follow-up means of playing outside and watching television per day, and regression coefficients of the intervention condition compared with the control condition

From: Promotion of a healthy lifestyle among 5-year-old overweight children: health behavior outcomes of the 'Be active, eat right’ study

  n Intervention condition n Control condition Beta coefficient (95% CI)1 Beta coefficient (95% CI)2
Outside play, mean (SD)       
Baseline 315 161.84 (106.66)* 264 160.50 (100.91)   
Follow-up 153 135.93 (91.32)* 140 123.82 (76.34) 15.00 (-4.14; 34.15) 8.22 (-15.77; 32.22)
Watching television, mean (SD)       
Baseline 318 103.93 (74.05) 270 105.94 (66.57)   
Follow-up 156 102.64 (61.67) 142 104.34 (54.81) -1.56 (-14.56; 11.44) -1.56 (-14.57; 11.45)
  1. 1Beta coefficient and 95% confidence interval (95% CI) from regression model evaluating the difference between intervention and control condition on the outcome at follow-up, corrected for baseline value of the outcome, time between measurements and age of the child at baseline.
  2. 2Beta coefficient and 95% confidence interval (95% CI) from multilevel regression model evaluating the difference between intervention and control condition on the outcome at follow-up, corrected for baseline value of the outcome, time between measurements and age of the child at baseline.
  3. Note: Bold printed numbers indicate statistically significant within-group change; within-group change of behavior from baseline to follow-up was evaluated using cluster-adjusted intercept only regression analysis, asterisks indicates significance level: *p < 0.05.
