  1. Data are presented from imputed datasets
  2. MVPA Moderate- to vigorous-intensity physical activity, ST Recreational screen time, SE Standard error, CI Confidence interval, SES Socioeconomic status
  3. *: statistically significant at p < 0.05
  4. Models were adjusted for age, sex, SES, and school location
  5. Meeting the 24-h movement guidelines is defined as ≥60 min/day for MVPA, ≤2 h/day for ST, and between 9 and 11 h per night for sleep duration
