  1. The table shows association between the scale of perceived risk or precautionary behaviors in response to H1N1 influenza, and age or household size. Correlation coefficient presents Spearman's rho for predicted death toll, and Pearson's correlation coefficient for other measures. WTP = willingness to pay.
