AbstractThis umbrella review analyzed the relationships between social and physical micro-environmental (neighborhood, school) characteristics as predictors of child and adolescent diet, physical activity, and body weight. Eight systematic reviews, discussing 132 original studies (97% correlational, 3% experimental) yielded 98 social, physical, and socio-economic characteristics, as categorized in the original reviews. Among micro-environmental predictors stronger support (i.e., replicated results) was obtained for 12 out of 98 original micro-environmental variables, with physical activity as the outcome in 10 out of 12 cases. In particular, replicated significant relationships were found for several physical activity-specific neighborhood and school characteristics (e.g., community opportunities to exercise, lower costs of physical activity facilities, physical activity build environment) and adolescent physical activity. Among more general (i.e., not behavior-specific) micro-environmental characteristics, stronger support was found for low crime level, school type, and child/adolescent physical activity.
