aEach row represents a separate generalized estimating equation regression model, and the columns describe the effect of each covariate on the adjusted sensitivity. All models were adjusted for race, gender, modality, age, calendar time, number of comorbid conditions, and the presence of diabetes or CVD. n = number of individuals in each model who have the condition as defined by medical record review. A-A, African-American; PD, peritoneal dialysis. “Any CVD” includes CAD, MI, CVA/TIA, and PVD. Other abbreviations as in Tables 1 and 2.
