  • The dependent variable in the multiple linear regression model is a cognitive score (Early Learning Composite Score of the MSEL or the Full-Scale IQ of the WPPSI or WISC-IV). Data are expressed as B value, 95% CI and p value using multiple linear regression model. Adjusted R2 of this regression model=0.054.
