Table 4 Mediated effect of accessibility and preferences on moderated effect of SES on FV intake trend

From: Changes in 10-12 year old's fruit and vegetable intake in Norway from 2001 to 2008 in relation to gender and socioeconomic status - a comparison of two cross-sectional groups

  cmod (SE) c'mod(SE) amod (SE) bmod (SE) abmod (SE)
FV intake 1.36 (0.57)     
Accessibility   0.72 (0.53) 0.55 (0.29) ‡ 0.84 (0.08)*** 0.46 (0.24)‡
Preferences   0.78 (0.52) 0.46 (0.29) 0.89 (0.08)*** 0.41 (0.26)
  1. the interaction term (time*parental education) is the independent variable.
  2. cmod = effect of parental education on the changes in FV intake over time; c'mod = effect of parental education on the changes in FV intake over time adjusted for changes in the mediator; amod = effect of parental education on the changes in the mediators over time; bmod = association between mediators and FV intake when adjusted for the moderator; abmod = mediated effect of mediators on the effect of parental education on the change in FV intake over time. SE, standard error. All analyses are adjusted for clustering effects and time, gender, parental education and treatment condition. ‡ p < 0.10; *p < 0.05; **p < 0.01; ***p < 0.001
