From: Sex education and self-poisoning in Sri Lanka: an explorative analysis

  Cases
n, % (95% CI)
N = 236
Hospital controls
n, % (95% CI)
N = 445
Model 1
OR (95% CI)
N = 681
Receipt of sex education
 Yes 167, 70.8 (64.6-76.2) 352, 79.1 (25.1-82.6) 1.00
 No 69, 29.2 (23.8-35.4) 93, 20.9 (17.4-24.9) 1.68 (1.11-2.55)
Quality of sex education received through school
 Good quality 113, 47.9 (41.6-54.3) 211, 47.4 (42.8-52.1) 1.00
 Poor quality 54, 22.9 (18.0-28.7) 141, 31.7 (27.5-31.2) 0.78 (0.53-1.16)
 No sex education 69, 29.2 (23.8-35.4) 93, 20.9 (17.4-24.9) 1.54 (0.99-2.38)
Usefulness of sex education
 Useful 146, 61.9 (55.5-67.9) 328, 73.7 (69.4-77.6) 1.00
 Not useful 21, 8.9 (5.9-13.3) 24, 5.4 (3.6-7.9) 1.95 (1.04-3.65)
 No sex education 69, 29.2 (23.8-35.4) 93, 20.9 (17.4-24.9) 1.79 (1.17-2.72)
  1. Hospital controls, complete case analysis (Total N = 681)
  2. Model 1: Adjusted for sex, age and religion
  3. OR Odds Ratio (if the OR>1, this suggests that exposed individuals were more likely to have self-poisoned than non-exposed individuals)
  4. CI Confidence Interval (if the CI overlaps 1, this suggests that there is no statistical evidence of a difference in risk between exposed and non-exposed individuals)
