Intentions : «The purpose of this investigation was […] to examine the associations between area deprivation and perceived neighbourhood safety with AT [active transport] to school among preadolescents living in urban Quebec.» (p. 377)
Échantillon/Matériau : «Baseline data from a larger study using a repeated cross-sectional design over 5 years (2012-2016) to evaluate the effects of the Opération Wixx multimedia campaign were employed. […] Data from a subsample of 809 dyads residing in urban Quebec were analyzed in the present investigation.» (p. 377)

«In conclusion, this study shows that active commuting to school is associated with area deprivation and parental perceived safety, intimating that physical environmental and policy measures designed to ameliorate neighbourhood safety may be beneficial in encouraging AT to school among preadolescents.» (p. 381) «[W]e also observed a greater likelihood of reporting actively commuting to school if parents perceived that it was safe for their children to commute to school. This association was not attenuated by the inclusion of the deprivation indices in the analysis, although material deprivation was no longer statistically significant once social deprivation was included in the model, indicating that social deprivation may be a stronger predictor of AT. The fact that parental perceived safety remained significant in the final model suggests that above and beyond policies and strategies that ameliorate neighbourhood safety, positively influencing parent perceptions may contribute to increasing AT among preadolescents.» (p. 380)
