Results of Cox proportional hazard modeling for mortality risk in NHANES III with , BMI, ABSI, HI, or ARI scores taken as linear or nonlinear predictors. All models also included as predictors sex and race. Ranges in parentheses are 95% confidence intervals for the hazard ratio. Models are arranged in decreasing order of skill (increasing ).
SD: standard deviation; : Akaike information criterion score difference relative to the best-performing model shown (see Methods for details); : measure of explained variation; : concordance.
