From: Substantial improvements not seen in health behaviors following corner store conversions in two Latino food swamps

You have a convenient place where you can buy healthy food 83.4 88.2 77.8 88.2*** 4.8 10.4
Healthy food is too expensive 52.4 53.6 55.2 53.0 1.2 −2.2
It’s hard to find places in your neighborhood where you can buy healthy foods 39.3 31.3* 39.0 33.1* −8.0 −5.9
The healthy foods sold in your neighborhood are low quality 56.2 51.7 63.5 57.6 −4.5 −5.9
  1. NOTES: Significant differences were tested between intervention baseline and follow-up using chi-squared tests, comparison baseline and follow-up using chi-squared tests, and percent difference (follow-up – baseline) for intervention and comparison using a Wald test on the interaction term of a logistic regression (more details can be seen in Additional file 1: Table S1). This Wald test can be thought of as testing whether the relative change (on an odds ratio scale) is the same in the intervention and comparison groups
