Table 4 The mean (standard deviation), median, 0.05 and 0.95 quantile and mode for logHR estimates for FV intake and for number of cigarettes smoked adjusted for the bias with the multivariate method, for various possibilities of equating the limits of literature-reported validity coefficients to quantiles of the uncertainty distribution, EPIC study 1992–2000
