Propensity Scoring MethodRate RatioCISEP
Binning2.432.40 – 2.460.01<.0001
Weighting2.672.64 – 2.690.00<.0001

Estimate = exponentiated log of rate ratio for Cohort OATC vs. SMTC

SMTC: Initiation of care of cLBP with SMT in 2013 (combination of SMT and SMTX)

OATC: Initiation of care of cLBP with OAT in 2013 combination of OAT and OATX)
