Age and height adjusted regression coefficients β and standard errors (SE) for lung function tests for 27 660 miners

  • TB = tuberculosis; FEV1 = forced expiratory volume in one second; FVC = forced vital capacity; FEF25–75% = forced expiratory flow at 25–75% of forced vital capacity.

  • 3-165 p<0.001.

  • 3-151 There were 23 712 additional miners who did not have TB who were used as a comparison group in the regression model.
