  1. Note: * p < 0.05, ** p < 0.01; The final adjusted models were also controlled for the following socio-demographics in the final model: location, age, education, and housing type. The IPV model also included variables to account for fear of husband/partner, effect of IPV on wellbeing, injury, payment of brideprice and justification of violence which were not statistically significant. The NPSV model also included variables about the perpetrator of violence and attitudes towards rape which were not statistically significant. Standard errors were clustered at the boma/block level for all multivariate analysis
