  • Crude model: unadjusted; *model two: adjusted for work hours in the previous 12 months, age (continuous), level of education, interview language and visible minority status; †model three: adjusted for interview year and province of residence, plus all variables in model two; ‡model four: adjusted for occupation and self-employment, plus all variables in model three.

  • All analyses weighted for selection in survey and non-response. Standard errors have been adjusted to account for complex survey design.
