A 1-year follow-up period from the time of enrollment into the Millennium Cohort Study 2004-2006 (N = 42896)*

*Excludes hospitalizations for complications of pregnancy, childbirth, and the puerperium (ICD-9-CM 630-676).

ORs and associated confidence intervals from multiple logistic regression were adjusted for sex, age, education, marital status, race/ethnicity, pay grade, branch of service, occupation, body mass index, smoking status, problem drinking, and differences in comorbidity using propensity scores. CIs that exclude 1.00 were significant at the p < 0.05 level.
