Table 4 Logistic regression predicting whether children meet the recommended levels for PA based on parental PA

From: Associations between objectively assessed child and parental physical activity: a cross-sectional study of families with 5–6 year old children

  All children Sons Daughters  
  N OR for child meeting recommendations for PA if parent meets them [95% CI] N OR for child meeting recommendations for PA if parent meets them [95% CI] N OR for child meeting recommendations for PA if parent meets them [95% CI] P for heterogeneity*
Father: Model 1 423 1.90 [1.02 to 3.52] 227 2.00 [0.85 to 4.68] 196 1.52 [0.64 to 3.60] 0.414
Father: Model 2 423 1.84 [1.00 to 3.39] 227 2.00 [0.87 to 4.61] 196 1.41 [0.60 to 3.28] 0.660
Mother: Model 1 651 1.63 [1.09 to 2.43] 337 1.68 [1.10 to 2.56] 314 1.62 [0.86 to 3.05] 0.922
Mother: Model 2 651 1.62 [1.09 to 2.41] 337 1.68 [1.10 to 2.55] 314 1.63 [0.86 to 3.08] 0.919
  1. *Testing that associations are different between time spent in MVPA by daughters and by sons; tested by adding an interaction term (parent MVPA*gender) into the regression model.
  2. Model 1: Unadjusted association.
  3. Model 2: Adjusted for parent’s age, parent’s BMI, and household IMD.
