Table 3 Final regression model showing factors associated with PTSD and depression/anxiety symptoms

From: Comparison of self-reported health & healthcare utilisation between asylum seekers and refugees: an observational study

Characteristics PTSD Symptoms Depression/Anxiety Symptoms

  1. a is the adjusted OR for the model containing residence status. b is the adjusted OR after removal of residence status from the model.
  2. For both regression models; residence status, post migration stressors, pre migration stressors and the presence of >1 chronic condition was entered into the model. In the PTSD model, the final regression model retained post migration stressors, pre migration stressors and chronic conditions, while the depression/anxiety regression model retained all three explanatory variables.
