Table 2. Bivariate logistic regression of formal education and traditional knowledge base on evacuation.

Education (formal and nonformal) Evacuation Voluntary evacuation Voluntary shelter evacuation
Number of years of education 1.055* 1.051* 0.998

Education (categorical): with 0 years of education as reference
Education between 1 to 10 years 1.006 0.804 0.619
Education between 11 to 17 years 2.779** 2.304* 1.05

Education (categorical): with 1 to 10 years of education as reference
Zero years of education 0.993 1.243 1.61
Education between 11 to 17 years 2.76** 2.866** 1.7

Traditional knowledge base on predicting cyclones based on environmental precursors
1.914** 2.384*** 1.743**
The number in the cells are exponentiated betas or odds ratios. An odds ratio of 1 (or not significantly different from 1) indicates no effect. An odds ratio larger (or smaller) than 1 indicates factor by which odds of evacuation are increased (or decreased) by one unit change in independent variable. *, **, *** represent the level of significance (alpha)
*** implies alpha ≤ 0.01
** implies alpha ≤ 0.05
* implies alpha ≤ 0.10
