  1. Notes: The response variable was the status of having changed neighborhoods after cancer diagnosis (Yes/No: 4583/12495, total crude sample size n = 17,078). Covariates were selected using forward selection steps (entry significance level = 0.05) in an unweighted model before inclusion in the final model, where we applied survey procedures to take into account NHIS sample design.
