  1. Negative binomial models are estimated. IRR is the incidence rate ratio defined as eβ, where β is the coefficient estimate. Robust standard errors are presented in parentheses
  2. All the p-values have been replaced by stars and categorised as follows. ***: p < 0.01; **: p < 0.05; *: p < 0.10
