Mine/UXO events 1. Cases 1979–93 (per 10000 person-years) 21 (6.802) 9 (1.898)
2. Cases 1994–97 (per 10000 person years) Risk of a case occurring after 1994: OR 0.28, 95%CI 0.07–0.99 (in urban mined areas) 9 (14.577) 14 (14.763)
3. Upper limb injuries as proportion of all injuries among survivors of mine accidents after 1994 Risk of an upper limb injury after 1994: OR 0.12, 95%CI 0.02–0.82 (in urban areas) 3/14 (21%) 11/16 (69%)
Inappropriate attitudes and practices (search for metal, consider non-qualified person brave if go into mined area)   
4. With easy radio access (%) 377/4207 (9%) 65/423 (15.4%)
5. Difficult radio access (%) Risk of inappropriate behaviour, stratified by ease of access to radios OR 0.61, 95%CI 0.44–0.84 2/83 (2.4%) 378/4216 (9%)
