  1. CCA      - complete case analysis
  2. MI -5     - multiple imputation using 5 imputation files
  3. rank      - the order of appearance of predictors in the derived model arranged by their predictive ability (regression coefficient)
  4. %          - inclusion frequency; the proportion of times that a variable with a univariable association with the outcome is retained in the automated backward selected models. When a variable was selected in each of the replications, the inclusion frequency was 100%
  5. *           - outcome measure
