  1. Caption: Beta coefficients are evaluated as change in quintile rank corresponding to a 5% increase in BMI or WC percentiles. Standard errors are presented in parentheses. All models are adjusted for exposure to cigarette smoke, family history of cardiovascular disease, hours of screen-time, white race, black race and other race. pR2 – partial R2, representing the independent explanatory power of each predictor.
