Table 2

The variance of the log(odds of CHD) between towns after adjustments for individual level variables (n = 7543)

  • 2-150 In analysis A, each variable is adjusted for age alone. Variables are listed in order of their ability to explain town variance. In analysis B, each variable is adjusted successively for all variables above it in the table. The percentage of town variance explained is the percentage reduction in the variance for a particular model to that given for a model only including age.
