  • *The ranges of each quartile for height were 115-160, 161-164, 165-168, and 169-199 cm for men, and 110-148, 149-152, 153-155, and 156-198 cm for women.

  • HRs were adjusted for age at baseline (continuous), gender (men or women), study area (10 public health center areas), number of pack-years (0, 1-19, 20-29, 30-39, and ≥40 pack-years, as an ordinal variable), alcohol category at baseline (nondrinkers, occasional drinkers, and 1-149, 150-299, and ≥300 g/wk, as an ordinal variable), and weight category at baseline (four quartiles).
