  1. Only variables (or variable strata) significantly related to the dependent variable are retained in the logistic regression model. N = 789 for the female logistic regression model. Hosmer and Lemeshow Goodness-of-Fit Test: X 2 = 1.18, P = 0.95. N = 250 for the male logistic regression model. Hosmer and Lemeshow Goodness-of-Fit Test: X 2 = 1.70, P = 0.95.
