  1. Notes 1) In case of missing values, the number of missing values (Nmissing) were presented; Mothers received questions about the HPV vaccination of their daughter, whereas daughters answered questions about the HPV vaccination of themselves; 2) These number represents daughters and are obtained from the vaccine registration for participants recruited via Praeventis, and are self-reported for participants recruited via an online panel; *Significant difference between Praeventis and the panel (p < .05).
