Table 3 Ordinal regression analysis of the relation between outcome in QoL and outcome in individual unmet needs

From: Changes in individual needs for care and quality of life in Assertive Community Treatment patients: an observational study

  1. *Pseudo R-Square (Nagelkerke) = .075; Goodness-of-Fit Pearson Chi-Square = 288.828. df = 265. p = .151.
  2. CANSAS items 10 and 21 were excluded form the modeling process.
  3. **The parameter estimates represent the ratio of the odds for very poor to very good QoL outcome (range 1-4) and for very poor to very good outcome on individual CANSAS items (range 1-4).
  4. A ratio above 1.0 means that better outcome on CANSAS items increases the odds of better QoL over time.
