  • * Separate model for each SES characteristic.

  • Separate models for each SES characteristic, adjusting for race, age and sexual history characteristics (those that were significant at p<0.20 in bivariate analysis).

  • Base model includes race, age and sexual history characteristics (those that were significant at p<0.20 in bivariate analysis) (pseudo R2=0.142).
