a High physical activity and fitness defined as being in the top quarter of physical activity or fitness within sex strata.

b Self-reported physical activity (PA).

c PR: prevalence ratios adjusted for the effects of clustering by school.

d PR: prevalence ratios adjusted for the effects of clustering by school plus baseline area-level SES, baseline smoking, baseline parental physical activity, highest level of education, smoking at follow-up, marital status at follow-up and number of live births at follow-up (females only)
