Table.2 Average Weight Gain per Age Rangea and 95% Confidence Intervals (CIs) Based on Mixed Effects Modeling

From: Demographic and sociocultural risk factors for adulthood weight gain in Hispanic/Latinos: results from the Hispanic Community Health Study / Study of Latinos (HCHS/SOL)

Age Range Average Weight Gain Per Age Rangea Lower 95% CI Limit Upper 95% CI Limit
22–29 years 9.52634 6.76798 12.2847
30–39 years 8.47104 6.24663 10.6955
40–49 years 7.29849 5.04409 9.5529
50–59 years 6.12593 3.83046 8.4214
60–69 years 4.95338 2.60634 7.3004
70–76 years 4.01533 0.16987 7.8608
  1. a Average weight gain per decade of age is calculated as the fitted value from the model for the end of the age range minus the fitted value for the beginning of the age range, standardized to 10 years (i.e., divided by the length of the age range, and then multiplied by 10 years). The fitted values were adjusted to weighted age at clinic visit, proportion male, proportion born before 1980, distribution of age at immigration, proportion for each site-background combination, and proportion preferring 5 s and 10s
