Table 3 Stepwise multiple linear regression analysis using attention as dependent and physical fitness components as predictor variables

From: Associations between measures of physical fitness and cognitive performance in preschool children

Variables R2 ß-Coeff r3 95% CI p Value Effect size

  1. Statistically significant relationships (p < 0.05) between physical fitness and attention are written in bold
  2. 95% CI 95% confidence interval, ß-Coeff. standardized ß-coefficient, r3 partial correlation coefficient—association between dependent and predictor variables of regression analyses
  3. *Adjusted R2; only those physical fitness components that predicted attention (composite score, quantitative and qualitative dimension) are noted here
