Table 3 Associations between adolescent unit increase in MRB score and SES variables in young adulthood

From: Is adolescent multiple risk behaviour associated with reduced socioeconomic status in young adulthood and do those with low socioeconomic backgrounds experience greater negative impact? Findings from two UK birth cohort studies

  BCS70 (N = 9691) ALSPAC (N = 9001)
Unadjusted OR (95% CI) p-value Adjusted a OR (95% CI) p-value Unadjusted OR (95% CI) p-value Adjusted OR a (95% CI) p-value

  1. a Models in BCS70 were adjusted for sex and conduct score at age 10 and models in ALSPAC were adjusted for sex, IQ score age 8, conduct score at age 10, Key Stage 2 score and season born
  2. b OR are presented indicating the odds of the outcome for each incremental single behaviour out of a possible eight behaviours for BCS70 and thirteen behaviours for ALSPAC
