From: The effects of community clustering on under-five mortality in India: a parametric shared frailty modelling approach

Birthweight HR a 95% CI
Less than 2500 g 2.33** 2.17 2.50
2500–2999 g ®    
3000–3999 g 0.99 0.92 1.06
4000 g and above 2.34** 2.09 2.63
  1. HR, hazard ratio; CI, confidence interval; ** p-values < 0.01 and * 0.01 < p-values < 0.05
