Table 3 Estimated risk differences in the racial disparity of diabetic care visits under modeling strategies

From: Propensity score matching for multilevel spatial data: accounting for geographic confounding in health disparity studies

Model Risk difference 95% CrI
Unadjusted 0.038 (0.029, 0.047)
Patient I – 0.021 (– 0.031, – 0.011)
Patient II – 0.027 (– 0.038, – 0.016)
Spatial I – 0.057 (– 0.068, – 0.046)
Spatial II – 0.073 (– 0.091, – 0.056)
  1. Negative values indicate that NHBs have a lower estimated risk of receiving a diabetic care visit. Unadjusted: observed sample risk difference. Patient I: covariate-adjusted propensity model, unadjusted outcome model. Patient II: covariate-adjusted propensity score and outcome models. Spatial I: spatial propensity score model, unadjusted outcome model. Spatial II: spatial propensity score and outcome models
