  1. 1Those Canadians that received HIV wording a were excluded from the country comparison to make data comparable between the clusters
  2. 2Differences between the clusters were tested using cross tabulation with Chi-square and Z-tests. SR = Standardized residuals
  3. 3Differences between clusters were tested using ANOVA and post-hoc tests (LSD and Tamhane)
  4. 4Scale: 1 = completely on reasoning to 4 = partly, partly to 7 = completely on gut feeling
  5. 5Scale from 1 = very low to 4 = average to 7 = very high
