Table 13 Self-reported behaviour: awareness of treatment claims

From: Effects of the Informed Health Choices primary school intervention on the ability of children in Uganda to assess the reliability of claims about treatment effects, 1-year follow-up: a cluster-randomised trial

  1. aThe odds ratio for the dichotomised data is shown in the table. The odds ratio from the mixed ordinal logistic regression was 1.30 (95% CI, 1.01 to 1.67; P = 0.0431)
  2. bThe difference is an adjusted difference, based on a mixed model with a random effects term for the clusters and the stratification variables modelled as fixed effects, using logistic regression. The odds ratio from the logistic regression has been converted to a difference using the intervention schools as the reference and the inverse of the odds ratios shown here
