Table 3 Multivariate regression analysis with cardiovascular events as dependent variable

From: Self-efficacy regarding physical activity is superior to self-assessed activity level, in long-term prediction of cardiovascular events in middle-aged men

   Step 1 (n = 377) Step 2 (n = 377) Step 3 (n = 351)
Model Variables included Risk Ratio 95 % CI p-value Risk Ratio 95 % CI p-value Risk ratio 95 % CI p-value

  1. CI, Confidence interval
  2. Step 1- the models are adjusted for anthropometric and metabolic parameters; Step2- the models are adjusted for PAR-Q (pass/fail) and for anthropometric and metabolic parameters; Step 3- subjects who failed the PAR-Q were excluded (n = 26) and the models were adjusted for anthropometric and metabolic parameters as in Step 1
