Table 4 Adjusted odds ratios relating CSA to diabetes, household population aged 18 years or older, Canada, 2012

From: Childhood maltreatment as a risk factor for diabetes: findings from a population-based survey of Canadian adults

  Odds ratios controlling for socio-demographic factors:
  and obesity and smoking status and physical activity level and high blood pressure and life-time depression and diabetes risk factors

  2. CSA Childhood sexual abuse, CI confidence interval
  3. %∆ percent change: Refers to the percent change in the standardized regression coefficient for child maltreatment variable resulting from the inclusion of mediating variables in the logistic regression model compared with the model only controlling for socio-demographic factors (only indicated if childhood maltreatment variable was significant in the socio-demographic model)
  4. The odds ratios are based on unstandardized regression coefficients. The socio-demographic controls include age, sex, marital status, education, household income, immigrant status, ethnicity, employment status, and place of residence
  5. *Significantly different from reference (p < 0.05)
