  • Multiple linear regression with the lung function variable as dependent variable. Model 1: adjusted for age, sex (all subjects only) and height. Model 2: + body mass index and current smoking. FEV1: forced expiratory volume in 1 s; % pred: % predicted; FVC: forced vital capacity; RV: residual volume; TLC: total lung capacity; DL,CO: diffusing capacity of the lung for carbon monoxide. #: n=128; : n=122; +: n=221; §: n=196; ƒ: n=349; ##: n=318; ¶¶: p=0.052; *: p<0.05; **: p<0.01; ***: p<0.001.
