Univariate logistic regression analysis of variables affecting HCV screening

VariableAdjusted OR
(95% CI)
White 0.76 (0.61 to 0.95)
 Other1.14 (0.75 to 1.73)

  • ORs for HCV screening were determined for race, gender and socioeconomic quartile using the open-source statistical program R. Low socioeconomic standing and white race were associated with a lower likelihood of screening (significant variables in bold).

  • HCV, hepatitis C virus.
