Note about coefficients: these estimate the difference in the median (percentage change) in the regression equation with respect to IMD quintile. In the last two columns this is after other variables have been fixed (adjusted for) in the regression equation.

*Gender, age group, smoking status, mental health disorder comorbidity, patients living arrangements and patient-reported MRC dyspnoea score at initial assessment.
