  1. a constrained to zero in the final model as correlation coefficients < |.10|. AS = access to services; PBW = physical barriers to walking; SC = street connectivity; IW = infrastructure for walking; A = aesthetics; TH = traffic hazards; CR = crime; IPW = indoor places for walking; PP = presence of people; CD = crowdedness; TRH = traffic and road hazards; TS = traffic speed; SDL = social disorder/littering.
