  2. a Sex-specific data weighted for education, marital status, birthplace, presence of at least one child in the household, living in an area with chlordecone contamination (coastline and inland) and urban size, using the 2012 national census
  3. b Base model: multivariable model with the three socioeconomic factors, adjusted for location (Martinique or Guadeloupe), age, sex, single-parent household, presence of at least one child in the household and body mass index
  4. c Model assessing the mediating effect: base model + overall DQI-I

  6. e %VOR: percentage variation in OR; ((ORbasemodel − ORmodel with mediator) / (ORbasemodel − 1)) × 100
  7. f %RD: percentage reduction of deviance due to socioeconomic indicators explained by inclusion of mediator ((reduction in deviance due to socioeconomic indicators of base model) − (reduction in deviance due to socioeconomic indicators of base model + mediator) / reduction in deviance due to socioeconomic indicators of base model) × 100
