  1. Notes. CI confidence interval, B unstandardized coefficient, β standardized coefficient, ŧŧ confidence intervals fall outside of country ranges
  2. All coefficients were adjusted for marital-status, foreign born status, and education level. Higher coefficient indicates a greater association between the multimorbidity and loneliness
