*Smoking is defined as all students who experiment with smoking or who smoke daily or weekly. | ||||

†The “n” is lower than in the total study population as it only concerned the students that did not smoke at the first measurement. | ||||

‡Adjusted for the following factors: ethnicity, age, religion, and gender (all three at the class and individual levels). At school level, the size of the school was included. OR, odds ratio; CI, confidence intervals. In multilevel logistic regression, random variance on the school and class levels represents the relation of the explained variance between the two levels. These variances cannot be compared with the random variance at the individual level due to the error estimate included in the latter variance. | ||||
