From: Adherence to antiretroviral therapy (ART) during the early months of treatment in rural Zambia: influence of demographic characteristics and social surroundings of patients

Variable B SE β p AOR 95% CI
Gender (Females) 0.21 0.09 0.21 0.021* 3.26 1.20-8.90
Experience of food insufficiency in the previous 30 days 0.30 0.09 0.31 0.002** 5.00 1.81-13.76

R2 0.28      
  1. B: Unstandardized coefficient; SE: Standard error; β: Standardized coefficient; p value at <0.05* & <0.01**; A0R: Adjusted odds ratio; CI: Confidence interval; R2: Coefficient of determination. The variables of which the associated p value level was less than 0.1 by an univariate analysis were entered into a multiple logistic regression model.
