Relative odds of dying during or immediately following a heat wave by quintile of composite index.
The logistic regression results indicated that the relative odds an owl would switch nests between nesting attempts were independent of replacement of the female (Z21 = 0.32, P = 0.57), or the male ([chi square]1 = 0.01, P = 0.92), but the nest success and nest structure coefficients were both significant (P < 0.05).
For AMI, there was a 21% decrease in the relative odds of death from 1994-1995 through 2004-05, when the risk adjustment model controlled for both paradoxical and non-paradoxical comorbidities (OR=0.79; p<.001).
The relative odds of aggression rose significantly in association with lower perceived levels of socioeconomic status, parental support, peer support, and school environment; with the single exception noted above, the pattern of risk gradients remained consistent across age and gender.
For each vaginal birth, the relative odds ratio for having stage 2-4 prolapse was 1.35; for each C-section birth, the relative odds ratio for having stage 2-4 prolapse was 0.9.

For univariate analysis of categorical variables, we used 2 x 2 tables; for multivariate analysis, we used conditional logistic regression to determine strength of association between HMPV infection and potential explanatory covariates to obtain relative odds (RO) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs); p values were obtained by using the Fisher exact test.
Teenagers consistently had the lowest likelihood of concurrent diagnoses, and the relative odds were higher in each successive 10-year age-group.
