M ± SD, unless otherwise indicated. All values are weighted to account for oversampling in low-income neighborhoods. Mazes range = 1–19; verbal comprehension range = 51–149); CSI-4 range = 40–97; ChEAT range = 1–6. For BMI and ChEAT binge-eating frequency, means correspond to normal weight or overweight/obese status measured at the same time point (eg, mean BMI at age 10 is reported for girls who were normal weight versus overweight/obese at age 10; mean BMI at age 12 is reported for girls who were normal weight versus overweight/obese at age 12). All other values reflect measurement at age 10. Subgroup %/n values do not add up to full sample %/n values because of missing data.
Summary of Hierarchical Regression Analysis for Age 10 Variables Predicting BMI Changes From Age 10 to 16
—, value refers to the entire row for the corresponding IV and DV, rather than the individual MVs; a, b, c' and c indicate the pathways corresponding to the preceding labels; DV, dependent variable; IV, independent variable; MV, mediating variable. * P < .05; ** P < .01; *** P < .001.
