Mortality incidence rate per 1000 person-years stratified by cause of death

All deaths (n=284)Deaths attributed to coeliac deaths* (n=35)Deaths from causes not related to coeliac disease (n=249)
Incidence rate (95% CI)Incidence rate (95% CI)Incidence rate(95% CI)
Coeliac cohort11.9 (10.5 to 13.3)1.5 (1.0 to 2.0)10.4 (9.1 to 11.8)
 Attributable risk1.4 (100%)0.7 (50%)0.7 (50%)
 General population†
  • *Deaths where the underlying cause of death was non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, pneumonia, or coeliac disease.

  • †Rate standardised by age, sex, and year of follow-up based on the coeliac cohort. Calculation of CIs for the reference group is not appropriate for analysis based on standardised mortality ratios (SMRs).

  • CI, exact Poisson CI.
