Logistic regression analyses: associations between indicators of job stress (effort-reward imbalance and job strain adjusted for each other) and myocardial infarction (men and women aged 45–64 years) (multivariate odds ratios (95% CI), number of exposed)

*Adjusted for each other and additionally adjusted for and hypertension, total cholesterol, diabetes, family history of CHD; †additionally adjusted for cigarette smoking (never/former/current), BMI ≥27, lack of physical exercise (<2/week).
