  1. 1) GLM modeling of SOC-quartile classification scores, including age, BMI, and level of education group in the model, ln-transformed diet intake values. ns for p > 0.09.
  2. 2) Type I sum of square estimates are when only SOC quartile scores have entered the model, and
  3. 3) Type III sum of square estimates when all variables are kept in the model. Independent contribution by (a) age group, (b) BMI, and (e) education level in explaining nutrient/food intake variations are indicated by the respective superscript.
  4. 4) Geometric mean intakes standardized for age, BMI, and education in SOC-quartile (Q1, Q2+Q3, Q4) groups. Mean (95% CI) SOC score in the Q2+Q3 group (nmen = 1323; 50.4% of all men) is 69.3 (69.0–69.5).
  5. 5) The difference between mean intakes (standardized for age, BMI and education) in the lowest (Q1) versus highest (Q4) SOC quartile groups.
