  1. Note. Based on N = 3192. Inverse probability weighting was used to allocate sampling weights to complete cases in weighted analysis. In unweighted analysis, each case carries the same weight. All pairwise comparisons are adjusted for child sex, housing tenure, maternal severe depression, maternal smoking, and maternal educational level. Bold values indicate statistically significant associations. a Reference group.
