Table 6 Odds ratio for unit change in road network proximity to motorway access point for odds of total walking and cycling, and walking and cycling by type, by study area

From: Local walking and cycling by residents living near urban motorways: cross-sectional analysis

Study Area Type of walking and cycling in local area
Odds ratio (95% CI) for total walking and cycling Odds ratio (95% CI) for walking and cycling as active travel Odd ratio (95% CI) for walking and cycling for recreation
South (new motorway) 1.07 (0.49,2.34) 0.96 (0.46,1.98) 0.73 (0.49,1.11)
East (longstanding motorway) 2.02 (0.98,4.16) 2.03 (1.00,4.12)* 1.53 (0.77,1.74)
North (no motorway) 1.23 (0.51,2.97) 1.33 (0.55,3.21) 0.63 (0.36,1.09)
