  1. Multinomial logistic regression model: reference group is low occupational sitting time, low TV viewing time (n = 153)
  2. Multinomial logistic regression model results presented are adjusted for all other variables included in the table
  3. RRR: Relative risk ratio; CI: confidence interval
  4. *p < 0.05 **p < 0.01
  5. aRRR corresponds to each additional 30 min/week of leisure-time physical activity
  6. bRRR corresponds to each additional 100 kJ of energy consumed per day
  7. cSignificant confidence intervals include the value of 1.00 due to rounding
