  • Figures are estimated marginal means or adjusted predicted probabilities and significance testing adjusted for season of measurement, mean wear time and number of valid days.

  • Statistically significant difference between boys and girls, or across SIMD quintiles: *P<0.001

  • †Significance testing conducted as contrast between base category (most deprived) and all other quintiles

  • CPM, counts per minute; MVPA, moderate to vigorous physical activity; PA, physical activity; SIMD, Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation.
