ERR 1 with 95%CIs for Linear model: liver and urinary. For cancers of the liver (blue) and urinary (red) and for latency ϕ = 30, 31,... 44 years, ERR1 is the Excess Relative Risk from 10 mSv (lagged dose) as estimated by fitting the linear model at latency ϕ. The error bars show Profile Likelihood 95%CIs assuming a χ2 (1 d.f.) distribution of LRT for testing β = β0 against β ≠ β0.
