  1. Logistic regression performed with the three groups of sex, ethnicity, and age - comparing stroke subtype risk against cryptogenic stroke. The results for sex are controlled by ethnicity and age. The results for ethnicity are controlled by gender and age. The results for age are controlled by sex and ethnicity. Significant results are bolded
