  1. 95% CI = 95% confidence interval; exp.(b) exponential function of regression coefficient; exp.(95% CI) = exponential function of confidence interval
  2. a Generalized additive mixed model (GAMM) with binomial variance and logit link functions, for which exp.(b) is interpreted as odds ratio
  3. b GAMM with Gamma variance and logarithmic link functions, for which exp.(b) is interpreted as the proportional increase in PA associated with a 1 unit increase in the predictor. All models adjusted for working status, marital status, administrative-unit-level socio-economic status and walkability
  4. * p-value ranging from ≤.05 to >.01; ** p-value ranging from ≤01 to >.001; *** p ≤ .001
