  1. a: mean adjusted for age
  2. b: Interaction between health status and years of education: results for years of education = 12 years compared with years of education < 12 years; model adjusted for age
  3. c: Interaction between health status and years of education: results for years of education > 12 years compared with years of education < 12 years; model adjusted for age
  4. d: Interaction between health status and income level: results for income level between 9,900-14,300 compared with income level < 9,900 ; model adjusted for age
  5. e: Interaction between health status and income level. Results for income level between 14,300-20,400 compared with income level < 9,900 ; model adjusted for age
  6. f: Interaction between health status and income level. Results for income level > = 20,400 compared with income level < 9,900 ; model adjusted for age
  7. † Results from multiple linear regression models adjusted on age; reference group = no health condition
