  1. Results include estimates of odds ratio (OR) and corresponding 95% confidence intervals. The OR is interpreted as the increase in odds for physical (HSQ470 > 15 days) unhealthy days upon changes in the categories of the explanatory variables. Data was analyzed using sampling weighted generalized linear models (logistic) as described under Methods
