  • *Adjusted for age group, sex, local authority, marital status, education level, employment, deprivation score and pre-existing illness.

  • †Number of observations included in all multivariable models was 484. Both models 1 and 2 included the same participants, but the reference group differed. ORs are only presented for the comparison of interest.

  • ‡Due to very small numbers of participants with ‘severe/extreme problems’ on the self-care dimension, the ‘severe/extreme’ and ‘moderate’ categories were combined.

  • aOR, adjusted OR.
