  1. a Estimates are taken from a Gibbs sample of 10,000 values.
  2. b Gibbs sample convergence statistic; Geweke (1992).
  3. c High Density Region.
  4. d Relative risk is computed for the probability of at least one deaf ear for white male versus tricolour male, white male versus tan male and white female versus white male, respectively.
