  • M1 (basic model) included CCE. M2 additionally controlled for Index of Multiple Deprivation (IMD) and interaction terms (CCE*IMD). M3 additionally adjusted for demographic factors (age, gender, ethnicity, partnership status, presence of children under age 16 years, whether or not living alone and regional locations). M4 additionally adjusted for socioeconomic position (educational levels, occupational socioeconomic status, household monthly gross income and housing tenure). Bold values denote statistical significance at the p<0.05 level.
