* high = scores 5 to 10

RR: relative risk, PR: prevalence ratio, CI: confidence interval

Participant's education adjusted 1 includes: age for males and age, marital status and area of residence for females.

Parents' education adjusted 1 includes age for males and age, marital status and area of residence for females. Adjusted 2 models include additional adjustment for participant's education level.

RR/PR were estimated using log binomial regression models

Males, n = 918; females, n = 1033
