  1. aThe odds ratios of each predictor are mutually adjusted for the other predictors. They are, moreover, adjusted for geographic region, participation in the Danish RTW-program study, Danish citizenship, calendar period and social transfer payments during a two-year period prior to the baseline
  2. bThe reference (comparison group) for a given industrial sector consist of all other industrial sectors combined
