Results from multi-level regression clustered for school at follow-up examining differences in adolescents’ views about type of activity for increased participation by broad population subgroup
Which of these activities Girls (vs. boys) Overweight/Obese <60 mins/day MVPA Low parent N (%) already Already
or sports would you (vs. normal weight) (vs. ≥60 mins/day education participate participate
like to try or do MVPA) (vs. high) (N = 402) (Yes vs. No)

MVPA: moderate and vigorous physical activity defined ≥2000 accelerometry counts per minute.

Already participate: Number and percentage of participants who report already participating in an activity within that group.

Total number of activities: Mean (SD) of number of activity types which adolescents would like try or do more often.
