estimates below 1
(female mortality is higher than male)

 

estimates which are greater than 1 but less than 2
(male mortality is moderately higher than female)

 

estimates which are above 2
(male mortality is much higher than female)

* Not significant, p-value = 0.054 with 1 DF. All other estimates are significant at the 0.001 level.
