Table 3 Results of the ordinal regression models that regressed mental health (dependent variable) on the interaction between social factors and hunger (independent variables) in gender-specific regression models controlling for grade, family affluence scale and urban status among youth in Canada in gender-specific analyses. The point estimates are adjusted odds ratios and the error bars show 95% confidence intervals
