CI: confidence interval; CC: cervical cancer; SD: standard deviation of individual participants; HBMS: Health Belief Model Scale; HCP: health care provider.

aStudent’s t-test with survey weights.

bRao-Scott Chi Square test.

cAdjusted for age (continuous), education (college graduate and above vs. less than college graduate), relationship (living with a partner vs. not living with a partner), employment status (working full-time vs. not working full-time), and insurance status (having insurance vs. no insurance).

Odds ratios shown for continuous variables are per one-unit increase, except…

dOdds ratio per 5-unit increase.

eFor MIDI only, higher values represent lower perceived levels.
