  1. aHere, meeting physical activity guidelines was defined as reporting ≥150 min·wk.−1 in moderate-intensity activity, ≥75 min·wk.−1 in vigorous-intensity activity, or equivalent combinations
  2. bModels adjusted for age, sex, smoking, social-occupational class, BMI, longstanding illness, survey year
