  1. *Indicates current age, i.e. individuals can contribute to several age groups.
  2. † MR = mortality rate per 1000 person years of observation.
  3. ‡ MRR = Mortality rate ratio, comparing with HTLV-negative.
  4. §CI = confidence interval.
  5. # Adjusted for age in a Poisson regression, see statistical methods
