  1. The proportion explained is calculated from coefficients in Table 2, as (1 – (Model 1 AME / Model 2 AME)). The p value refers to statistically contrasting the AME in Model 1 and Model 2; that is, it represents a test of the null hypothesis that the proportion explained is equal to zero. Only those variables with an observed AME in Model 1 are tabulated here, as they represent baseline gaps in foregoing healthcare across demographic characteristics
