 Selected results of a Poisson regression analysis

Diagnosis text/ship typeRelative risk95% CI
The relative risks for male seafarers on different ship types are shown. In all analyses, crews on passenger ships are used as reference.
The > sign indicates that the diagnosis is a subgroup of a larger diagnostic group.
