  1. N number of risk estimates, CI confidence interval, AIC Akaike information criterion
  2. Note. Models were fit to the level of socioeconomic deprivation, scaled as a proportion between 0 and 1. The coefficients for the level of socioeconomic deprivation refer to the difference between the lowest level of socioeconomic deprivation (i.e., lowest percentile) and the highest level of socioeconomic deprivation (100th percentile)
