Full Model 2 BMI(measured)= -0.67+1.04(BMIself-reported)+0.64(age 25-34)+0.31(age 35-44)+0.39(age 45-54)+1.28(age 55-64)+1.16(age 65-74)+0.86(75 or older) -0.97(life dissatisfaction)-0.73(underweight)
Reduced Model 3 Weight(measured)= -2.19+1.05(weightself-reported)
Height(measured)= 7.70+0.95(heightself-reported)
Reduced Model 4 BMI(measured) = -1.08+1.08(BMIself-reported)
Full Model 1 Weight(measured) = -1.25+1.04(weightself-reported)+1.25(overweight)+0.52(end-digit preference)
Height(measured) = 14.85+0.91(heightself-reported)-1.20(age 25-34)-0.87(age 35-44)-0.59(age 45-54)-1.34(age 55-64)-1.42(age 65-74)-3.79(75 or older) -0.32(ethnicity E/SE Asian)-0.73(ethnicity other)-0.66(activity limitation)
Full Model 2 BMI(measured)= 1.01+1.01(BMIself-reported)-0.91(secondary graduation)-0.32(some postsecondary)-0.53(postsecondary graduation)+0.70(overweight) +0.29(end-digit preference)
Reduced Model 3 Weight(measured)= -2.14+1.07(weightself-reported)
