  1. √ = result of the individual study
  2. a= Authors of the individual study reported this result, albeit statistics were not reported. This may be because associations with SEP were not the primary purpose of their study. However, as they reported specific patterns in their results and have reported associations with SEP, the authors of this systematic review have acknowledged these. Please see Additional File 5 for a full quantitative breakdown of results
  3. N/A = not applicable as the study did not look at this aspect. Where cells are empty, this was not a result of the individual study
