*Adjusted for exemption status.|
†How likely an unimmunized child in the United States is to acquire vaccine-preventable diseases on a 5-point Likert scale (impossible to very likely)—mean for 10 diseases.
‡How serious it would be if an 8-year-old child acquired vaccine-preventable diseases on a 5-point Likert scale (not at all serious to very serious)—mean for 10 diseases.
§How protective vaccines are on a 5-point Likert scale (not protective at all to very protective)—mean for 10 vaccines.
How safe children’s vaccines are on a 5-point Likert scale (very unsafe to very safe)—mean for 10 vaccines.
¶Counts presented represent the count of non-missing data, and the corresponding percentage is the percent of respondents in each Internet usage group with non-missing data that indicated that a given information source was a “Good or excellent source.” Missing data were not consistent over information source. Odds ratios are calculated based on non-missing results through unadjusted and adjusted logistic regression.
