Table 2 Differences in physical activity variables across different domains in boys attending sports schools and normal schools, respectively

From: Do extra compulsory physical education lessons mean more physically active children - findings from the childhood health, activity, and motor performance school study Denmark (The CHAMPS-study DK)
