  1. Upper part: Results from quantile regression showing the average number of unemployment days per year during follow-up, represented as group median values (95% CIs). Lower part: Results from Poisson regression with robust standard errors showing the relative risks (95% CIs) of having 30 unemployment days or more per year on average compared to normal weight without MD (the reference group). Individuals who were unemployed for 180 days or more before baseline or who received any disability pension were excluded
  2. Model 1: adjusted for sex and age (demographic factors)
  3. Model 2: + country of birth, educational level, occupational status, and income (socio-economic factors)
  4. Model 3: + short-term unemployment at baseline (< 180 days)
