Adjusting for baseline characteristics

#1
Hi all,

This is probably a simple question, but when an article mentions regression models were applied while adjusting for baseline characteristics such as sex, age, income etc, can I confirm baseline characteristics mean confounders, i.e regression models were applied to adjust for confounders?

Correct. MULTIPLE regression allows for multiple predictors. When using it, you can put in the model potential confounders to control (AKA adjusted) for their effect on the outcome.
