From: Association between sudden infant death syndrome and diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis immunisation: an ecological study

  Estimate [per 10% increase] IRR (95% CI)
DTP immunisation coverage −0.08 0.92 (0.87, 0.97)
Infant sleep position (supine) −0.12 0.89 (0.86, 0.91)
  1. CI, confidence interval; IRR, incidence rate ratio.
