Table 4 Spearman correlation between program dose and outcome measures

From: Implementation of a co-designed physical activity program for older adults: positive impact when delivered at scale

  Relationship between baseline value and program dose (Spearman’s rho) Relationship between program dose and change baseline to 3 months Relationship between program dose and change baseline to 6 months
Provincial assessment (n = 458)
 Physical activity (# days/week > 30 min) 0.05 0.06 0.06
 Social Exclusion (score, 0–15) 0.06 −0.02 − 0.06
 Loneliness (score, 3–9) − 0.006 −0.01 0.01
 Sitting time (hours/day) −0.005 −0.07 − 0.004
 Happiness (score, 1–7) − 0.06 0.09 − 0.05
Comprehensive assessment subset (n = 209)
 Physical activity (kcal/week, all exercise) 0.15 (p = 0.03)* −0.07 −0.06
 Physical activity (kcal/week, moderate exercise) 0.14 (p = 0.049)* −0.09 −0.06
 Physical activity (frequency/week, all exercise) 0.09 0.03 0.12
 Physical activity frequency/week, moderate exercise) 0.09 0.01 0.10
 Mobility (SPPB score, 1–12) −0.09 0.1 − 0.06
