  1. a - OR indicates odds ratios; CI-L and CI-U indicates lower and upper confidence intervals respectively; Bolded indicates significant results at p ≤ 0.05
  2. ' - ' in OR cell indicates variable was not applicable and therefore not used for the particular age group
  3. Variables included but not significant in any regression: age, school attendance, marital status, work status, and birth control use
