Table 4 Odds Ratios for the association between Universal Eligibility Criterion and two predictors: child weight category (facilitator-measured data only), and agreement of parent-reported child weight category, sequentially adjusted for potential confounders

From: Enrolment of families with overweight children into a program aimed at reducing childhood obesity with and without a weight criterion: a natural experiment
