  1. OR = 0 no outcome event for the age group
  2. OR = 1 exposure does not affect odds of outcome
  3. OR > 1 exposure associated with higher odds of outcome
  4. OR < 1 exposure associated with lower odds of outcome
  5. aThe covariates included in the logistic regression model were marital status, gravida, and ANC
