Variable Reference group* (OR=1) Comparison group* ORs (95% CI) for obesity

OR (95% CI) Covariate-adjusted OR (95% CI)
Sedentary time Low sedentary High sedentary 1.47 (1.13−1.91) 1.50 (1.15−1.96)
Physical activity High active Low active 1.19 (0.91−1.55) 1.13 (0.86−1.47)
Category A Low sedentary/high active High sedentary/low active 1.59 (1.09−2.32) 1.56 (1.08−2.25)
Category B Low sedentary/low active High sedentary/low active 1.47 (1.06−2.04) 1.50 (1.08−2.09)
Category C High sedentary/high active High sedentary/low active 1.13 (0.81−1.58) 1.07 (0.75−1.53)

OR: odds ratio, CI: confidence interval.
