Table 4 Correlations between individual-level latent factors of the NEWS (above the diagonal) and NEWS-A (below the diagonal).

From: Cross-validation of the factorial structure of the Neighborhood Environment Walkability Scale (NEWS) and its abbreviated form (NEWS-A)

NEWS-A factors   IL2 IL3 IL4 IL5 IL6 NEWS factors
Land use mix – access (IL1A)   .29 .21 .19 < .10a < .10a Land use mix – access (IL1)
Street connectivity (IL2A) .45   .32 .23 -.10 < .10a Street connectivity (IL2)
Infrastructure & safety for walking (IL3A) .17 .41   .43 -.59 -.40 Infrastructure & safety for walking/cycling (IL3)
Aesthetics (IL4A) .29 .31 .30   -.42 -.31 Aesthetics (IL4)
Traffic hazards (IL5A) < .10a -.34 -.46 -.31   .51 Traffic hazards (IL5)
Crime (IL6A) < .10a < .10a -.37 -.21 .46   Crime (IL6)
  IL1A IL2A IL3A IL4A IL5A   
  1. a constrained to zero in the final model as correlation coefficients smaller than |.10|. The subscript A stands for NEWS-A.
