*Question read as follows: ‘Have you had any of the following occurring often or repeatedly in the last 6 months?’.

†P values obtained from fitting a univariable mixed effect logistic regression where prior TB status is the independent variable.

‡P value based on the non-parametric Somers’ D measure, accounting for clustering.

§P values obtained from fitting a univariable mixed effect logistic regression where prior TB status is the dependent variable.

FEV1, forced expiratory volume in 1 s; FVC, forced vital capacity; TB, tuberculosis.
