Table 3 Multivariate Logistic Odds Ratio Models of Mother’s Misclassifications of Child Overweight Status

From: Do mothers accurately identify their child’s overweight/obesity status during early childhood? Evidence from a nationally representative cohort study

  Mode1 1: MisclassifyW2 (dependent variable =1 if mother misclassified the child’s weight status at three years old; 0 otherwise) (95% Confidence Intervals) Model 2: MisclassifyW3 (dependent variable =1 if mother misclassified the child’s weight status at five years old; 0 otherwise) (95% Confidence Intervals) Model 3: MisPredict (same as model 2 with the dependent variable from model 1 added as an additional explanatory variable) (95% Confidence Intervals)

  1. Notes: The table presents estimated odds ratios from three separate binary logit models (1) “MisclassifyW2”using wave 2 of the GUI Infant Cohort, (2)“MisclassifyW3” and (3) MispredictW3 using wave 3 of the GUI Infant Cohort.. a denotes statistically significant at 1%, b denotes statistically significant at 5%, and c denotes statistically significant at 10%. Confidence Intervals in parathensis. Analysis is weighted to be nationally representative
