Beta coefficient (Standard Error) p value
Store (food basket price)*
Store 1 ($15.46) vs. Store 5 ($20.60) 3.66 (0.94) < 0.001
Store 2 ($16.75) vs. Store 5 ($20.60) 3.73 (0.94) < 0.001
Store 3 ($17.35) vs. Store 5 ($20.60) 1.93 (0.88) 0.029
Store 4 ($18.96) vs. Store 5 ($20.60) 1.52 (0.80) 0.057

Association between food basket price (independent variable) and BMI (dependent variable) was explored by multiple linear regression. The model was adjusted for age, sex, residential area median income and personal car ownership.
