Table 2 Binary logistic regression models showing relationship between self-efficacy, discussion of HIV/STIs with partner, knowing partners HIV status, schooling in high HIV prevalence area, types of sexual partners and consistent condom use

From: Factors associated with consistent condom use: a cross-sectional survey of two Nigerian universities

Variables Model 1 Model 2 Model 3
UOR (95%CI) UOR (95%CI) UOR (95%CI)
Condom self-efficacy

University location
 Located in high HIV prevalence area 2.84 (1.95–4.13)*** 3.04 (2.07–4.48)*** 2.86 (1.92–4.28)***
 Located in low HIV prevalence area 1 1 1

  1. Model 1- contains no covariates
  2. Model 2- controlled for demographic characteristics
  3. Model – controlled for demographic characteristics and established risk factors for risky sexual behaviour such as alcohol and drug use
