  3. Data with different superscript letters are significantly different p < 0.05, according to the post hoc ANOVA statistical analysis for continuous variables and chi square for categorical variables. The column means test table assigns a superscript letter (a, b or c) to the robust, prefrail and frail groups. If a pair of values is significantly different, the values have different subscript letters assigned to them. If a pair of values are not significantly different, the values will have the same superscript letters assigned to them. Data without superscripts is not significantly different between robust, prefrail and frail groups
