Domestic 8.6 (4.57) 10.6 (3.82) 9.9 (3.18) 9.1 (4.16) 2.77 (0.70 – 3.31) <0.01

  1. *Adjusted for baseline FAI values, age, sex, marital status, occupational status and number of chronic conditions.
  2. FAI: range 0 – 45 (total), 0 – 15 (subscales). Higher scores = greater occupational performance.
