Table 3 Age- and gender-adjusted differences in poor SRH between the high and the primary educational categorya, adjusting for childhood circumstances, current circumstances and behavioural factors.

From: The contribution of childhood circumstances, current circumstances and health behaviour to educational health differences in early adulthood

Adjusted factors Educational level High Primary  
   OR [95 CI] % reduction in ORb Proportion shared %
Base modelc 1.00 4.69 [2.63–8.32]   
Childhood circumstances 1.00 3.80 [2.00–7.23] 24  
Current circumstances 1.00 4.41 [2.29–8.49] 8  
Behavioural factors 1.00 3.00 [1.60–5.61] 46  
Childhood and current circumstances 1.00 3.64 [1.78–7.41] 28  
Childhood circumstances and behavioural factors 1.00 2.65 [1.72–2.02] 55  
All 1.00 2.61 [1.17–5.83] 56  
Shared effect of current and childhood circumstances (%)    (24+8)-28 = 4  
Shared effect of behavioural factors and childhood circumstances (%)    (24+46)-55 = 15  
Proportion of the effect of childhood circumstances shared with current circumstances (%)     4/24 = 17
Proportion of the effect of childhood circumstances shared with behavioural factors (%)     15/24 = 63
  1. Odds ratios (OR) with 95% CI:s and percentage reduction (%). Shared effects of behavioural factors/current circumstances and childhood circumstances (%) and the proportion (%) of the effect of childhood circumstances shared with current circumstances/health behaviour.
  2. a Reduction % and shared effects not caluculated for the middle educational category as it did not differ significantly from the reference category in the base model
  3. b Reduction % was calculated: [(OR(base model)-OR(base model+intermediated factors))/(OR(base model)-1)]
  4. c Adjusted for age and gender
