Table 6 Tracking coefficients and change in score by age for dietary patterns derived during adolescence1

From: Vegetarian-style dietary pattern during adolescence has long-term positive impact on bone from adolescence to young adulthood: a longitudinal study

  Tracking dietary patterns Change in dietary pattern score
  ß (adolescence score) 95% CI P value ß (age) 95% CI P value

Western-like 0.47 0.40, 0.53 < 0.001 − 0.008 − 0.029, 0.012 0.42

  2. 1Generalized estimating equations was used for modeling association between adolescence and adulthood standardized and energy-adjusted dietary pattern scores while controlling for sex, age, and age at adolescence; n = 115. Tracking coefficient (ß coefficient for adolescent dietary pattern) shows how participants maintained their position in the study population distribution, between adolescence and young adulthood. Tracking coefficient for age represents z score change in dietary pattern score from adolescence to young adulthood
