  1. SE standard error, PR prevalence ratio, CI confidence interval. The results were weighted based on the proportion of participants compared with known population totals in demographic strata based on home municipality, sex and age and, adjusted for finite population correction. Prevalence ratios were calculated using univariate log-binomial regression analyses
