Table 4 Multinomial logistic regressions showing associations between weight status of the child and the child reporting more or less health related behaviour than their parent

From: Agreement between parent and child report of physical activity, sedentary and dietary behaviours in 9-12-year-old children and associations with children’s weight status

   Crude analyses, unadjusted Adjusted for gender, SES and ethnicity, weight status and age of parent
   Reporting less than their parent Reporting more than their parent Reporting less than their parent Reporting more than their parent
