Simple and adjusted logistic regression models of prevalent overweight/obesity among Luxembourgers and Portuguese immigrants, ORISCAV-LUX survey, 2007-2008
Odds ratio (95% CI) P value
Luxembourgers (n 652) Portuguese immigrants (n 191)
Model 1 unadjusted Referent 1.42 (1.01 - 1.99) 0.043
Model 2 adjusted for age and sex Referent 2.08 (1.42 - 3.03) <0.0001
Model 3 (Model 2+ SES) Referent 1.83 (1.16 - 2.90) 0.01
Model 4 (Model 3+ physical activity) Referent 1.91 (1.19 - 3.08) 0.007
Model 5 (Model 4 + dietary factors) Referent 1.57 (0.93 - 2.65) 0.09

Model 1=unadjusted; Model 2=adjusted for age and gender; Model 3=Model 2 plus SES (education in three categories; income in two categories); Model 4= Model 3 plus physical activity in three categories); Model 5= Model 4 plus dietary factors (total fat in percent Kilocalories, total carbohydrate in percent Kilocalories, total protein in percent Kilocalories, and total fiber in gram).
