Associations between objectively measured physical activity and later mental health outcomes in children: findings from the UK Millennium Cohort Study

Accelerometer data were collected at age seven and Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire (SDQ) scores at age 11. Associations between PA/sedentary time and SDQ scores were estimated using linear regression models.
