  2. *dichotomized (0 = 0–3 family members; 1 = 4 or more family members)
  3. 1n = 200 due to missing values
  4. 2n = 80 due to missing values
  5. Missing data were excluded for the stratified Poisson regression models for the urban (n = 80 complete cases out of 86 total cases) and rural (n = 200 complete cases out of 240 total cases) sites. The family members variable (n = 18 missing cases in the rural sites; n = 5 missing cases in the urban sites), mean family income (n = 2 missing cases in the rural sites only), age of onset (n = 23 missing cases in the rural sites; n = 5 missing cases in the urban sites) and GAF (n = 1 missing case in the rural sites only) had missing data. Treatment status and marital status did not have any missing data
