  1. χ2 = 0.88, p = 0.64–for sex; χ2 = 17.6, p = 0.001–for age; χ2 = 7.88, p = 0.25–for education. *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01, as compared to the 1st tertile; #p < 0.05, ##p < 0.01 as compared to the 2nd tertile (proportions were compared using the Z test).
  2. Distance to green space: the 1st tertile–≤347.8 m (high); the 2nd tertile–347.81–629.6 m (moderate); and the 3rd tertile–≥629.61 m (low).
