  • Overweight (N = 17950) was defined as a BMI ≥95th percentile of the CDC/NCHS 2000 growth curves, and nonoverweight was defined as a BMI <95th percentile; high MVPA (N = 18413) was defined as ≥5 bouts of MVPA per week, and low MVPA was defined as <5 bouts of MVPA per week. SEs were corrected for the complex survey design.

  • a Referent group = 0 facilities in block group.
