  1. For the categorical covariates, the hazard ratio is the proportion of risk compared to the reference covariate. For the continuous covariates, the hazard ratio is the proportion of risk with an increase of 1 unit (e.g., 1 min). A variable with a hazard ratio close to a value of 1 has a marginal effect and a confidence interval (CI) spanning 1 has no effect on hazard. All models include probability of presence as the dependent variable and list independent variables included in the best-fitting models. p-values are from the log-rank test and asterisks indicate statistical significance
