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)

  1. ”β“ is adjusted beta-coefficients from mixed models and indicates differences in counts/min and % of total time between sports schools children and normal schools. “*” indicates significant difference between girls attending sports schools and normal schools, respectively.
  2. ”**” indicates borderline significant difference between girls attending sports schools and normal schools, respectively.
