Abstract

Objective: This cross sectional study aims to determine the effects of gender and parental perception of safety at school on children's physical activity (PA) levels.

The physical activity indicators were evaluated using linear and logistical regression models. Results: Analysis did not indicate that gender moderated the relationship between parental perception of safety and PA measures, but significant gender issues exist with girls participating less than boys in the three measures of PA in this study (p
