  • Model 2 covariates: age, sex, smoking status, smoking pack-years, alcohol status, daily alcohol intake, ethnicity, Townsend Deprivation Index, days exercised (walked, moderate and vigorous), body mass index, length of working week, job asthma risk and job medical required. Model 3 data are adjusted for Model 2 covariates plus sleep duration.
