  1. Number of household members and allergic comorbidities status (i.e., presence vs. absence) are included as covariates in each of the models. Annual household income was also included as a covariate in each of the models predicting well-being. Income sufficiency quantifies the difference between a family’s actual income and the income they deem sufficient to meet their needs
