Multivariable (adjusted) odds ratios (AOR) and 95% confidence intervals (95%CIs): Multivariable relationships for the relationship between interpersonal, social and environmental factors and consistent condom use with non-commercial sex partners of female sex workers in four districts in Karnataka state1,2,3

1n/a: Means that the factor was not available for analysis for that type of non-commercial partner

2 The symbol / means that the variable was not significant in bivariate analysis and thus not included in multivariable analysis

3Only variables that were significant for one of the two outcomes in bivariate were included in this table for brevity
