The Department of Clinical Epidemiology, The Department of Biomedicine, and the Department of Renal Medicine are involved in studies with funding from various companies as research grants to (and administered by) Aarhus University or Aarhus University Hospital. None of these studies are related to the current study. DN is on the steering group for two GlaxoSmithKline funded studies of kidney function in Sub-Saharan Africa, unrelated to the work in this paper. The results presented in this paper have not been published previously in whole or part, except in abstract format. There are no conflicts of interest.
Data are available as presented in the paper and in the eAppendices. According to Danish legislation, we are not allowed to distribute or make the patient data used in the current study directly available to other parties. Parts of the code can be provided for replication upon request, but the entire code cannot be shared due to Danish legislation as it may contain patient identifiable data. Interested researchers may apply for data access through the Research Service at the Danish Health Data Authority.
