Table 6 Adjusted ORs (95 % CI) for the effect of gender and age class on the reporting of AR (n = 11,606) and on the reporting of NAR (n = 11,525)

From: The gender, age and risk factor distribution differs in self-reported allergic and non-allergic rhinitis: a cross-sectional population-based study

  1. Adjusted for smoking habits, educational level, geographical area, residential area, presence of industrial plants near home, intensity of car and truck traffic near home, current asthma and doctor-diagnosed eczema, plus centre-specific percentile rank of cumulative response, type of contact (postal waves and telephone interview) and season when the questionnaire was filled in. ORs that are significantly different from 1 are reported in italics (p < 0.05)
  2. For AR, the table shows the main effect of gender and age class separately, for NAR, the table shows the ORs that describe the interaction effect between gender and age class
