* Standard deviations above/below average.

** 1 is average risk; range is the approximate 95% confidence interval. A relative risk greater than 1 indicates greater than average death rate while numbers below 1 indicate a lower than average rate. For example, 1.2 indicates a 20 percent greater risk than average while 0.8 indicates a 20 percent lower risk.
