1. Note: 95% confidence intervals (CI) that include 1.00 indicate a non significant result.

2. Independent variables controlled for were: age; highest educational qualification; household income, no. of children ≤ 16 years in household; residential location (urban or rural, and location remoteness via Accessibility/Remoteness Index of Australia (ARIA+); being born in Australia; speaking a language other than English at home (‘minority status’); perceived likelihood of terrorism and self-rated health status, personal resilience (CD-RISC2) and psychological distress (K10).

3. Psychological distress was measured using the K10. Values range from 10–50, with ≥22 considered ‘high’ psychological distress.
