Figure 1. Mortality rate in the Leiden Longevity Study and the Leiden 85-plus Study. Hazard ratios and 95% confidence intervals for mortality of the highest sex-specific tertiles compared to the lowest sex-specific tertiles are shown for the Leiden Longevity Study participants, the Leiden 85-plus Study participants and the pooled Hazard ratios. LLS = participants of the Leiden Longevity Study, 85-plus = participants of the Leiden 85-plus Study, LLS and 85-plus = combined estimates of the Leiden Longevity Study and the Leiden 85-plus Study.
