  1. Model 1 included TCS scores, gender, age and education; model 2 – the variables of the model 1 and the interaction between TCS scores and gender; model 3 - the variables of the model 1 and the interaction between TCS scores and age; model 4 - the variables of the model 1 and the interaction between TCS scores and education; all models were adjusted for the prevalence of daily smoking.
  2. OR which differ from 1.00 with statistical significance (p < 0.05) are presented in bold.
  3. Abbreviations: TCS - Tobacco Control Scale, OR - odds ratio, CI - confidence interval.
