1Absolute number and proportion of women belonging to a specific category who got a sufficient score on attitude, e.g. out of 65 women aged 10 to 19 years, 23 (35.4%) had a score of ≥4 points.

2Adjusted OR: odds ratio by multiple logistic regression (variables in the model: age, residence, education, occupation, and religion).
