Art Exhibit 1.82 (1.32–2.50) 1.25 (0.88–1.77)

  1. Data shown are adjusted Odds Ratios (95% Confidence Intervals) from logistic regression models relating Cultural Activity to SRH (1 = good/excellent; 0 = fair/poor). Each event type is tested in a separate model. Cultural Activity is also tested in a separate model.
  2. 1Model I models are adjusted for age, gender, martial status, race, and number of children.
  3. 2Model II models are further adjusted for subjective social class, employment status, household income, and education.
