  1. *p < 0.01, λ = factor loadings, −- = item was not included in the model
  2. Model 1 did not have any correlated errors between indicators, whereas Model 2 had a correlated error between BMI z and waist circumference
  3. BMI z body mass index standardized for age and gender, CAMSA Canadian Agility and Movement Skill Assessment, PACER Progressive Aerobic Cardiovascular Endurance Run
