  2. bp-values derived from a t-test for the difference in means between Hispanic and non-Hispanic respondents
  3. cFrequency of behaviors were reported on a 5-point Likert scale where 1 = Never and 5 = every day. Higher mean values indicate greater frequency of participation in CMV risk behaviors
