Results of logistic regression models to examine the relationship of study population and age on detection of HPV groups
Clinician collected Self-collected
OR p 95% CI ptrend OR p 95% CI ptrend
Any HPV 1.2 0.4 0.77-1.8 0.01 1.0 0.9 0.68-1.6 0.03
Carcinogenic 1.1 0.6 0.66-2.0 <0.001 1.4 0.1 0.90-2.3 0.004
Non-Carcinogenic 1.1 0.7 0.69-1.8 0.8 0.73 0.2 0.46-1.2 0.7
alpha 1/8/10 1.4 0.6 0.44-4.5 0.5 1.9 0.2 0.74-4.7 0.8
alpha 5/6/7/9/11 0.94 0.8 0.59-4.5 0.003 1.1 0.6 0.74-1.7 0.01
alpha 3/4/15 1.1 0.8 0.64-1.8 0.4 0.79 0.3 0.51-1.2 0.7

Odds ratios (OR) with 95% confidence intervals (95%CI) were calculated as a measure of association of women not having been screened in the last 3 years (vs. the reference of those who had) with HPV detection; p value was included for reference. Age groups were modeled continuously to assess the age trend (ptrend).
