Regression coefficients from multivariate spatial analysis. Regression coefficients from multivariate spatial analysis of the association between street connectivity, individual and neighborhood characteristics and active transportation.

Street connectivity represents a major class of environmental variables of great interest to health geographers because they are potentially correlated with multiple health behaviors and organized over diverse spatial scales.
