  1. We coded age as continuous linear, education as linear (low, medium, high; following International Standard Classification of Education ISCED-97), job status as dichotomous (working = 1/retired = 2), health insurance as dichotomous (statutory = 1/ private = 2) and residence as population of hometown (over 10,000 inhabitants = 1/under 10,000 inhabitants = 2). For sources of health information, higher scores indicate more frequent use of respective sources (range 1–5)
