  1. Exposure:
  2. a Control over one’s life: Self-reported variable. The three response alternatives were grouped into two: 1) “Yes”, and 0) “No” or “I am not sure”
  3. Statistics:
  4. b Likelihood: OR: odds ratio (model 4), CI: 95% confidence interval
  5. c 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
