Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

The Theory of Planned Behaviour (TPB) has been successfully applied in many behavioural contexts and reported extensively in literature. However, there is still no consensus in terms of the methodology for analysing data gathered from such studies. This paper examines the application of TPB within the context of women's use of dietary supplements, and critically examines the use of logistic regression, multiple regression and structural equation modelling techniques in this context.
