Table 5 Beta coefficients and standard errors for time to first 1) injury/illness or 2) lower body musculoskeletal injury.

From: The influence of exercise and BMI on injuries and illnesses in overweight and obese individuals: a randomized control trial

  Self-reported Outcome (time in months)
Independent variables in censored linear regression models Any injury/illness attributed to exercise Lower body musculoskeletal injury attributed to exercise
  β ± SE p-value β ± SE p-value
Exercise Intervention a   0.41   0.51
   Control Reference   Reference  
   150 minutes/week 0.9 (2.5)   0.4 (2.9)  
   200 minutes/week -2.3 (2.0)   -2.6 (2.3)  
   300 minutes/week -1.8 (2.3)   -2.3 (2.6)  
BMI (kg/m2) at baseline b, c -0.51 (0.18) 0.005 -0.39 (0.21) 0.06
  1. a The β (SE) for the exercise (150, 200 or 300 minutes/week) versus the control group was -1.5 (1.9), p = 0.41 for any injury/illness attributed to exercise and -1.9 (2.2), p = 0.37 for lower body musculoskeletal injury attributed to exercise.
  2. b The β (SE) for obese (≥ 30 kg/m2) versus overweight (25-29.9 kg/m2) participants at baseline was -2.6 (1.5), p = 0.08 for any injury/illness attributed to exercise and -2.4 (1.7), p = 0.16 for lower body musculoskeletal injury attributed to exercise.
  3. c centered at 30
