Model 1: normal versus any SNHL; Model 2: normal versus moderate SNHL; Model 3: normal versus severe SNHL. OR: odds ratio. The values are based on Wald tests. Only variables significant at value 0.1 level from the univariable models included for each model. Ref is the reference group. Estimates obtained from maximum likelihood.
