  1. Associations of antibiotic resistance Percentage (%) prevalence of resistance shown for each antibiotic according to selected demographic factors. (TET = tetracycline; AMP = ampicillin; AMC = amoxicillin/clavulanic acid; FEP = cefepime; CIP = ciprofloxacin; NOR = norfloxacin; ADR = resistance to any antibiotic; MDR = multi-drug resistance).
  2. *Statistically significant by chi-squared analysis.
  3. **Statistically significant by multivariate logistic regression analysis, adjusted for age.
