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 |
