  1. Effect size is expressed by the odds ratios (OR) of the significant factors in the final model of the stepwise backward logistic regression. In the analyses only interviewees are included that have heard about the fox tapeworm (CZ: N = 68, FR: N = 88, DE: N = 343, CH: N = 309).
  2. * Variables who did not enter the final model: Sex, Household, State EM, Attitude, Country × Age, Country × Sex, Country × Household, Country × State EM, Country × Community, Country × Attitude.
