  1. aBCI Bayesian Credible Interval (The posterior distributions are summarized by the posterior mean and 95% BCI. A variable was considered as influencing the outcome if it excluded 0)
  2. bVariables were standardized to have mean of zero, and standard deviation of 1
  3. cRate of decay of spatial autocorrelation, measured in decimal degrees; 3/phi determines the cluster size; one decimal degree is approximately 111 km at the Equator (the size of the radii of the clusters)
