  1. All effects are significant, p < 0.001.
  2. a: Z-transformed, SD = 1. For all these risk factors, both the dependent and the independent variables are standardized. Thus, the reported adjusted b's equal Beta.
  3. b: SD = 0.20, β = 0.06, c:SD = 0.18, β = 0.03, d:SD = 0.50, β = 0.08
  4. e: frequency of top score (men's and women's education: more than 4 years university education).
  5. f: All predictors adjusted for all other predictors
