Data are regression coefficients (SE) for 1-SD difference in measure of obesity in men (waist 11.1 cm, WHR 0.074, BMI-adjusted WHR 0.058, BMI 3.7 kg/m2) and women (waist 11.6 cm, WHR 0.071, BMI-adjusted WHR 0.062, BMI 4.7 kg/m2).

*

Adjusted for age (years) and town of examination (Amsterdam, Doetinchem, Maastricht);

multivariate denotes additional adjustment for nonoccupational physical activity of at least moderate intensity (h/week), alcohol intake (abstainer, 0.1–0.9, 1.0–2.9, ≥3 drinks/day), smoking (ex, current, never), and educational level (junior secondary school or less, secondary school, or vocational college or university);

multivariate model with additional adjustment for BMI (kg/m2).
