Results are stratified by osteoporosis treatment status with the reference group being untreated women (heavy solid line with 95% CI shaded area). 95% CI bars are shown for the treated subgroups. The dotted line indicates the line of identity (perfect concordance between observed and predicted fracture incidence).
