Notes: Logistic regressions were run for the likelihood of consumption of SSBs and milk. Odds ratios from the logistic regressions were presented. Models also controlled for age as splines for adolescents, young adults, adults, and elderly, household size, residence in urban (with the reference group of rural residence, and survey round as a series of dummy indicators. The reference groups for household income and education group were bottom quartile of household income and less than high school. 95% confidence intervals are in brackets. Standard errors are in parentheses. * p< 0.05, ** p< 0.01.
