  1. aFor all the multilevel logistic regression models in this table, the variable of county/district was treated as the group variable in multilevel logistic regression
  2. bModel A was the basic model and only adjusted for gender
  3. cModel B was additionally adjusted for education, employment status and perception of economic status
  4. dModel C was additionally adjusted for marriage and having a child
  5. eModel D was additionally adjusted for smoking, drinking and physical activity
  6. fModel E was additionally adjusted for underlying conditions
  7. gModel F was finally adjusted for living alone
  8. hThe P value was obtained by the multilevel logistic regression for the association between eating arrangement and depressive symptom
  9. iThe P value was obtained by the likelihood ratio test comparing multilevel logistic regression model with logistic regression model for the association between eating arrangement and depressive symptom
