From: Feeding and smoking habits as cumulative risk factors for early childhood caries in toddlers, after adjustment for several behavioral determinants: a retrospective study

Number of observation = 2395 Caries severity Log likelihood = -2785.29 OR (SE) χ 2= 2431.62 p < 0.01p-value (95% CI)
Mean housing cost (SES) 0.34 (0.02) <0.01 (0.30 – 0.38)
Feeding practice 7.57 (0.44) <0.01 (6.77 – 8.48)
Number of observation = 2395 Log likelihood = -3655.37 χ 2= 691.47 p < 0.01
Caries severity OR (SE) p-value ( 95% CI)
Mean housing cost (SES) 0.24 (0.01) <0.01 (0.22 – 0.27)
Smoking habit 1.66 (0.15) <0.01 (1.38 – 1.99)
Number of observation = 2395 Log likelihood = -2772.91 χ 2= 2456.38 p < 0.01
Caries severity OR (SE) p-value ( 95% CI)
Mean housing cost (SES) 0.34 (0.02) <0.01 (0.30 – 0.38)

Smoking habit 1.62 (0.16) <0.01 (1.34 – 1.96)
Number of observation = 2395 Log likelihood = -2940.91 χ 2= 2120.38 p < 0.01
Caries severity OR (SE) p-value ( 95% CI)
Feeding practice 8.31 (0.47) <0.01 (7.44 – 9.29)
Smoking habit 1.61 (0.15) <0.01 (1.34 – 1.94)
