  1. Multivariate logistic regression was used to calculate ORs and 95% confidence intervals (95% CI) after controlling simultaneously for independent variables. N = 418
  2. An interaction was noted between gender and a plan to move to move to permanent housing. No interaction was found between age and other residence-related factors
