Note. OR = odds ratio; CI = confidence interval; estimates adjusted for complex survey design using clinic weight; propensity score estimated with replacement. Replacement of self-reported smoking with serum cotinine level did not change the results of this mediation analysis.

Referent group for 1 race/ethnicity is white, 2 age is ages 20-29, 3 gender is male, 4income is $20,000 or more, 5 education greater than high school, and 6 marital status is not married.
