Table 5 Effects of age and gender on temporal patterns of physical activity. Results of multiple regression analyses using age and gender as independent variables and the difference (Δ) between work and leisure in EVA derivatives (time (%) in prolonged sitting, BB standing, BB walking, and walking > 10 min) as dependent variables. B-coefficients indicate the effect of an increase of 1 year of age (Age), and of being female (Gender)

From: Differences between work and leisure in temporal patterns of objectively measured physical activity among blue-collar workers
