  1. a Logistic regression was used to predict yes or no answers to a question about whether a subject had anemia or iron deficiency
  2. b Unadjusted analysis refers to a simple logistic regression with the dependent variable
  3. c OR odds ratio
  4. d CI confidence interval
  5. e Adjusted analysis refers to the covariates that were best able to predict poor health, anemia, and iron deficiency using stepwise regression techniques in a multivariable model
  6. f Maternal education (1, low; 2, high)
  7. g Overweight (1, BMI < 85th percentile; 2, BMI ≥ 85th percentile)
  8. *P < 0.05, ** P < 0.01
