  1. * significant at 0.05 level on the adjusted log odds of being in the class versus the Constant High class.
  2. a patient age is categorized into “20-49”, “50-59”, “60-69”, “70-80” (treated as ordinal in GMMs).
  3. b satisfaction with social support received (ordinal scale from 0 “very dissatisfied” to 5 “very satisfied”).
  4. c likelihood ratio test (full model versus model without the predictor under consideration).
