  1. All ΔC-statistics and p values refer to difference between the anthropometric measure and BMI. C-statistics for BMI was xx for men and yy for women
  2. Cox regression Hazard Ratio (trend) of BMI, Weight, BF %, WHR, WC, WHtR, Height (adjusted for age, use of antihypertensive medication, lipid-lowering medication, systolic blood pressure, smoking, low physical activity, Apo-A and Apo-B blood levels, diabetes, alcohol consumption, low education, marital status and immigrant status) in men (orange) and women (blue)
  3. BMI body mass index, WC waist circumference, WHR waist-hip ratio, WHtR waist-height ratio, BF % body-fat percentage
