  1. OR odds ratio, CI confidence interval, Y younger (12–14 years), O older (15–17 years), BMI body mass index, OwOb overweight/obesity, UwHw underweight/healthy weight, MVPA moderate-to-vigorous physical activity, PA-LPA legitimacy of parental authority regarding physical activity
  2. Bolded values indicate significant odds ratios; parent and adolescent sex were not significant effects
  3. aReflects associations between latent class membership and dyad characteristic; Complete Influencers is reference class; second characteristic in pair is reference characteristic (e.g., younger adolescents compared to older adolescents)
  4. b OwOb defined as BMI ≥ 25 kg/m2; UwHw defined as BMI < 25 kg/m2
  5. c OwOb defined as BMI ≥ 85th percentile; UwHw defined as BMI < 85 percentile
