  1. * Variables of which we present the mean, the standard deviation and the median are continuous and (approximately) normally distributed; the other variables are categorical; ref = reference category. This part of the total file concerns the clients of whom the functional disability was assessed by an insurance physician using the List of Functional Abilities (LFA) and was administrated in the Claim Assessment and Monitoring System (CAMS).
