  • Superscript letters a, b and c denote a subset of the column variables (Z-test on proportions with Bonferroni post hoc test correction method, p<0.05); in a column, values labelled with the same letter are not different but values labelled with different letters are significantly (p<0.05) different from each other.

  • *Test of significance performed by χ2 test.
