  1. * Statistically significant OR (p < 0.05) are italicised.
  2. ** Percentage change in OR in age adjusted analyses compared with OR in age and emotional support adjusted analyses. Calculated by using:
  3. ([ORage adjusted-ORage and emotional support adjusted]/[ORage adjusted-1])*100. Percentage change is displayed when OR is statistically significant in the age adjusted model (p < 0.05).
