* P < 0.05

a Eight girls were excluded from regression analyses due to missing Neighborhood Deprivation Index or MET hours per week

b Adjusted for total number of streets observed per girl.

c Adjusted for total number of streets observed per girl, age, race/ethnicity, and BMI.

d Adjusted for total number of streets observed per girl, age, race/ethnicity, BMI, household size, age of birth mother, and household income. Two girls were further excluded due to missing household income information. N = 205.
