  1. Exposure:
  2. a Control over one’s life: Self-reported variable. The three alternatives were grouped into two: 1) “Yes”, and 0) “No” or “I am not sure”
  3. Social determinants:
  4. b Sexual identity: Self-reported variable. The five alternatives: heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual, I don’t usually categorize myself sexually were limited to four, since those who answered with I don’t know and “other” were removed from the analysis
  5. c Economy: Self-reported variable. The four alternatives very good, fairly good, not very good, and, not good at all, were grouped into two categories
  6. d Foreign-born: The categories for birth country and birth region follow Statistics Sweden’s alternatives: Sweden, the Nordic countries except Sweden, Europe except the Nordic countries, Africa, Asia, North America, South America, Oceania, Other, and were grouped into two categories
  7. e Social welfare recipiency: Register variable drawn from Statistics Sweden (SCB)
  8. Statistics:
  9. f Likelihood: OR: odds ratio (model 2), AOR: adjusted odds ratio (model3), CI: 95% confidence interval
  10. g Proportions: % are weighted proportions according to UngKAB15 to ensure that the sample group responses are representative of the total population aged 16–29 in Sweden
