  1. aAdjusted for socioeconomic status, maternal smoking during pregnancy, smoking at age 18, and BMI at age 18.
  2. bThe estimate needs to be exponentiated to calculate the risk ratio. In addition, to estimate the risk ratio due to the interaction, we need to take the two main effects and the interaction effect into account. The information is provided in Figure 3.
