  1. * Prevalence rate ratio for women versus men.
  2. Model 1: Adjusted by age.
  3. Model 2: Adjusted by age, marital status, education, and setting.
  4. § Model 3: Adjusted by age, marital status, education, setting, back pain, arthritis, angina, depression, and cognitive difficulties.
  5. || In a single regression model for all regions combined (not shown here), interaction terms were statistically significant for the Eastern Mediterranean and the Western Pacific regions using Africa as the reference region (P < 0.01).
