  1. a Examined the independent effects of covariates on SRH (very good, good, general, poor/very poor) by modeling a multiple ordered logistic regression
  2. b Cumulative OR from an ordinal logistic regression model with adjustment for all covariates. Self-rated health (very good/good/ general/poor/very poor) was the dependent variable. Each OR reflects the cumulative odds of rating poorer health versus better health against the cumulative odds in the reference group. Hence, the cumulative OR represents the average effect of the covariate on the cumulative odds of rating poorer health.
  3. c The 95 % CIs take into account the complex survey design. It was no significantly difference between the covariate group and the reference group if 1 fall within 95 % CI OR, and vice versa.
  4. d Examined the independent effects of covariates on unhealthy days by multiple liner regression.
