Supplementary notes

"Unadjusted rates can be helpful for understanding mortality within each population. We note that the Veteran population is older and has a higher a percentage of men in comparison with the non-Veteran population. Thus, we also include age and sex adjusted rates, per the U.S. 2000 Standard Population. Annual rates are per 100,000 population or, for Veterans with recent VHA use, person-years, as risk time could be calculated exactly for the VHA population."
