  1. NA = data not available, since no interview was completed. Wood dust exposure is based on information from interview. Where interview data was not available trade and job codes from the National Pension Fund (NPF) or self reported job titles in Central Person Registry (CPR) were used. A minimum employment length of one year was set as a lower limit. Patients without any records in NPF and CPR are also regarded as not exposed since they have not been an employee and therefore unlikely to be exposed to wood dust. The information from the interview was weighted more important than that in the data retrieved from the two registers.
