Figure 1. From: The relationship between body size and mortality in the linked Scottish Health Surveys: cross-sectional surveys with follow-up.

Functional form of the association of BMI with the relative hazard of death estimated in a Cox proportional hazards model adjusted for age, gender, smoking, alcohol consumption and survey year. The function was fitted using two-term fractional polynomial functions with powers (log, log). The function was standardized such that the HR was 1 at the mean of the desirable weight category for BMI (18.5–<25 kg m−2)=22.57 kg m−2. Dot-dash lines indicate the 95% confidence interval.
