  • aHRs adjusted for all other factors shown in the table.

  • bTests of a linear trend in the change of racial/ethnic inequalities over time were performed by treating the four-category diagnosis period variable as continous in the interaction term of the diagnosis period and race/ethnicity in the Cox regression models.
