NOTE: The four equations were simultaneously estimated, controlling for population density. Deprivation was entered as categorical variable; low deprivation is referent group. Population density entered as continuous variable. Results reported as multivariate-adjusted b (SE). Statistically significant variables are indicated as: *< 0.05 < 0.01 < 0.001
