  1. Notes. CI confidence interval, AOR adjusted odds ratio, ŧŧ confidence intervals falls 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 overnight hospital stays within 12 months
