Table 4 Odds ratio and 95% confidence intervals for the associations of trajectories 1 of socioeconomic status 2 with odds of having self-reported doctor-diagnosed arthritis 3

From: Independent associations of childhood and current socioeconomic status with risk of self-reported doctor-diagnosed arthritis in a family-medicine cohort of North-Carolinians

  Current SES:
  High Medium Low/Lowest
  (n = 426) (n = 388) (n = 462)
Childhood SES: High (n = 268) 1.00 1.40 (0.83, 2.36) 1.93 (0.85, 4.38)
n = 162 n = 73 n = 33
Medium (n = 395) 1.09 (0.72, 1.63) 1.15 (0.82, 1.60) 2.20 (1.29, 3.75)
n = 154 n = 139 n = 102

  1. Bolded results are significant at the 0.05 level.
  2. Model 1: adjusted for age, gender, race; Model 2: adjusted for age, gender, race, bmi.
  3. 1‘Lowest’ and ‘Low’ summary scores collapsed into ‘low’ category.
  4. 2Referent category defined as ‘high’ current SES and ‘high’ childhood SES, meaning: education strictly greater than high school, homeownership, occupation other than “professional” or “managerial and related”, maternal education greater than or equal to high school, paternal occupation qualified as “professional”, “managerial and related” or “sales and office”, and parental homeownership.
  5. 3 Parameters are odds ratio (OR) and 95% confidence intervals (CI).
