Table 1 Average attributable fractions and standard errors for 10 INTERSTROKE risk factors. BN (Bayesian network) corresponds to the causal structure shown in Fig. 1, whereas DE (Direct effects only) corresponds to the causal structure in Fig 3. The Monte Carlo SE is reported for the estimates in the top row of the table, but would be similar for the estimates corresponding to Fig. 3
