  1. a: all 4 models have the same measurement model; changes of pathways were only applied to structural models
  2. b: Model 1 is original model with all the proposed association as Fig. 2 and demographic variables of age, marital status, employment, etc
  3. c: Model 2 is the model with only significant demographic variables, namely, age and marital status
  4. d: Model 3 is the model with all significant demographic variable and significant latent association, with additional association of depression symptoms to sexual risk behavior
  5. e: Model 4 is the model used in our results, with association indicated in Fig. 2
