Bivariate linear regression showing relationship between Hemoglobin SS group, WBC, and CPC types. WBC was found to be a strongly associated with CPC number in the Hemoglobin SS group. Significant reductions in the beta-coefficient (>25%) compared to the main exposure variable are marked with an asterisk (*).
