Table 3 Logistic regression estimates (using generalized estimating equations) of the odds (and 95 % confidence interval) of a missed live birth using birth or pregnancy histories, adjusted for survival status of the live birth, maternal age, and parity

From: The validity of birth and pregnancy histories in rural Bangladesh

Parameter Adjusted odds ratio 95 percent CI
Questionnaire type*   
 Birth history (RC) 1.0
 Pregnancy history 2.0 (1.0, 3.9)
Current survival status of live birth**   
 Alive (RC) 1.0
 Dead 22.5 (9.7, 52.4)
Maternal age at interview (in years)** 0.8 (0.8, 0.9)
Parity** 1.7 (1.4, 2.0)
  1. Data sources: 1994 Matlab Demographic and Health Survey (MDHS); Matlab Demographic Surveillance System (DSS)
  2. RC reference category
  3. *p < 0.10 for the test of whether the adjusted odds ratio differs from 1.0
  4. **p < 0.05 for the test of whether the adjusted odds ratio differs from 1.0
