Table 4 Comparison of BEM model coefficients with physical activity (PA) outcomes

From: International comparison of observation-specific spatial buffers: maximizing the ability to estimate physical activity

  (1) # of pairs of significant (p < 0.05) BEM-PA coefficients* (2) # of pairs differing in BEM-PA coefficient significance (p < 0.05)*
