  Women (N = 3393) Men (N = 2975)
Self-reported Blood Glucose testing Absolute Measure Relative Measure Absolute Measure Relative Measure
Oa Education -12.74 (−17.55, −7.93)b -1.86 (− 1.89, − 1.84) b -0.42 (− 6.44,5.6)b − 0.08 (− 0.09,-0.07)b
Wealth 7.49 (3.36,11.63) b 1.39 (1.36,1.41) b 17.34 (12.15,22.53)b 3.55 (3.45,3.66) b
Ua Caste 0.93 (0.45,1.95) 1.08 (0.53,2.26) 1.19 (0.82,2.43) 1.51 (1.04,3.1)

  1. a The absolute measure reported for the O, or ordered dimensions (Education and Wealth) is the Slope Index of Inequality and for the U or unordered dimensions (Caste and Religion) is the Mean Difference from Mean, weighted. The relative measure reported for the O or ordered dimensions (Education and Wealth) is the Relative Concentration Index and for the U, or unordered dimensions (Caste and Religion) is the Weighted Index of Disparity. Values in parentheses are 95% confidence interval upper and lower bounds
  2. b indicates significant difference by sex
