  • Average (SD). *Independent samples t test. 95% CI, confidence interval of the difference between averages. Comparison of sports participation absence (SPA) time between levels. There is a statistically significant difference in SPA time between the two levels (pā€Š=ā€Š0.013), the positive time difference is what tells us that the SPA time of the proximal level is significantly higher than the SPA time in the distal level.
