  1. Results are from logistic regression models estimated with Generalised Estimating Equations to account for the dependency across repeated measurements (unstructured working correlation matrix)
  2. a Adjusted for gender, ethnicity, health condition, family affluence, free school meal status at wave 1, time and the other perception variables of the table
  3. b The adjusted model was replicated for each exposure with an additional interaction term between gender and exposure
