  4. dInteraction D
  5. eInteraction E
  6. xAll models were adjusted for participant age, sex, race/ethnicity, parent education, study design factors, number of days of accelerometer wear, number of school days, and accelerometer wear time in each location;
  7. yEmpty cells reflect models that were not investigated due to the activity location (e.g., school MVPA) being a mismatch with the location reflected in one or both of the location-specific indices comprising the interaction (e.g., non-school physical activity psychosocial index);
  8. z Values are standardized regression coefficients (β) and standard errors (SE) representing the interaction effect, with both the independent and dependent variables standardized to have a mean of zero and standard deviation of 1; Benchmarks for interpreting the magnitude of the interaction coefficients were small (β = .10), small-to-moderate (β = .20), and moderate (β = .30); Refer to Fig. 2 for interpretation of the interaction effects
  9. NA = Interaction not explored because location of one of the indices did not match location of the activity variable;
  10. *P < 0.1;
  11. **P < 0.01
