  • Weighted n=4874 (bivariate analyses) and 4698 (multivariate analysis). Bivariate totals that are 4875 not 4874 are due to rounding as the analyses use weighted data.

  • *Test of bivariate independence indicates significant difference (p<0.05).

  • †AB is higher managerial, administrative and professional and intermediate managerial, administrative and professional; C1 is supervisory, clerical and junior managerial, administrative and professional; C2 is skilled manual workers; D is semiskilled and unskilled manual workers; and E is state pensioners, casual and lowest grade workers, unemployed with state benefits only.
