Table 3 Adjusted likelihood of caregiving stressors predicting self-rated health

From: Refining caregiver vulnerability for clinical practice: determinants of self-rated health in spousal dementia caregivers

Factors Good SRH vs. poor/fair SRH Very good SRH vs. poor/fair SRH Excellent SRH vs. poor/fair SRH
  OR (95% CI) OR (95% CI) OR (95% CI)
Years of caregiving 0.11 (0.02, 0,59) 0.16 (0.03, 0.73) 0.04 (0.01, 0.34)
Clinical dementia rating 0.37 (0.10, 1.43) 0.23 (0.05, 0.99) 0.13 (0.02, 0.98)
Care recipient functional impairment 0.16 (0.03, 0.97) 0.16 (0.03, 1.07) 0.21 (0.02, 2.06)
Perceived caregiver burden 0.65 (0.10, 4.35) 0.52 (0.07, 3.89) 1.71 (0.12, 24.25)
  1. Multinomial logistic regression models were adjusted for age, sex, education, body mass index, physical activity, ever smoking, alcohol consumption, physical health problems, caregiver physical function, negative affect, positive affect, and social support. An odds ratio (OR) with 95% confidence interval (CI) in bold indicates a significant difference in the likelihood of half a standard deviation increase in standardized z-scores of a caregiving-specific stressor variable from the group of poor/fair self-rated health (SRH) as the reference category
  2. Range of scores: −0.59 to 2.60 for years of caregiving, −0.71 to 1.53 for clinical dementia rating, −1.34 to 0.89 for care recipient functional impairment, −1.17 to 1.25 for perceived caregiver burden
