  1. The table shows results of partial Kendall analysis with age of subjects as covariate. Significant results and trends (p < 0.1) are printed in bold. Positive Kendall Tau means positive relation between the variables. P value 0.000 means P < 0.001. No correction for multiple tests were performed, however, theoretical number of false positive tests should be 2–3, not 33
