Table 5 Age of CFS Onset and Educational Attainment (Finishing College) in the Sampled Population

From: The economic impact of chronic fatigue syndrome in Georgia: direct and indirect costs

  Percentage of CFS Cases (n = 107) Proportion Finishing College - Reported Proportion Finishing College - predicted based on individual characteristics
CFS Onset at Age 25 or Later 53% 0.35 NA
CFS Onset at Age 24 or Earlier 15% 0.23*** 0.57***
CFS Onset Age Unknown 32% 0.08*** 0.34***
Combined CFS Subsample (Regardless of Timing of CFS Onset) 100% 0.24*** 0.38***
  1. Note: 4.5% (n = 5) of the 112 CFS cases were less than 25 years old. Because the education of these individuals may plausibly change up to age 25, we do not include them in our regression and do not impute values for their educational attainment. * p < 0.1, ** p < 0.05, ***p < 0.01.
