  1. aCLD = chronic liver diseases; 96 CLD were classified as related to both alcohol and viral hepatitis
  2. bOdds ratio with 95 % Confidence Interval
  3. Model 1: stratified by gender and age; controls = all non-CLD related deaths
  4. Model 2: stratified by gender and age; controls = deaths with respiratory diseases as the underlying cause
  5. Model 3: stratified by gender, age, place of death, mention of specific circulatory diseases, and mention of cancer; controls = all non-CLD related deaths
