  1. *Propensity matching was conducted using patient demographic variables identified in pre-matched bivariate results (i.e., age, gender, employment status, marital status, income, education, smoking, alcohol use, body mass index, exercise and the Charlson comorbidity index). Subscripts refer to pairwise comparisons using chi-square tests for HRU and Mann-Whitney U tests for WPAI outcomes. If subscripts are different between categories, then statistical significance (p<.05) is indicated.
  2. *These metrics are only reported of those currently employed; Non-Migraine (N=957), 4-7 HDs (N=481), 8-14 HDs (N=281) and
  3. >=15 HDs (N=176)
