Abstract

The research objective was to evaluate the association between socioeconomic and demographic variables of health-related behaviors and characteristics of the home environment and the prevalence of overweight among students from 1st to 5th grade in the city of Itajaí in the State of Santa Catarina, brazil. Socioeconomic and demographic variables were identified through a questionnaire administered to parents/guardians. Nutritional status was determined by body mass index and waist circumference. The association between excess weight and other variables was investigated using Pearson's Chi-Square and the Linear Trend test. The population consisted of 417 children, which represented 95.2% of the sample. The data suggest that 44% of children were overweight, which was associated with: a better quality diet (49.4%, p = 0.051), lower frequency of consumption of snack foods, habit of eating meals while watching the television, overweight parents (51%, p = 0,002), the score of family nutrition (51.9%, p = 0.029**) and physical activity in children. It is suggested that health actions must consider the family environment and the social context of children to promote healthier lifestyles.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 30 July 2015.
All research outputs
#19,071,693
of 21,431,229 outputs
Outputs from Ciência & Saúde Coletiva
#738
of 881 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#206,401
of 248,481 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Ciência & Saúde Coletiva
#27
of 32 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 21,431,229 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 881 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.8. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 248,481 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 32 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
