  1. n = 3756, Sweden, 1999.
  2. a Model 1 shows separate analyses for each independent variable (nine different models) and is adjusted for age and gender.
  3. b Model 2 (full model) is adjusted for all the independent variables simultaneously. SRH, self-rated health; CI, confidence interval; OR, odds ratio.
  4. c obtained in all domains.
  5. d body mass index.
