In tables, units of measure, including the variability of the measurement if reported, should follow a comma in the table column heading or stub. The following are examples of stub entries with units of measure: Age, mean (SD), y Systolic blood pressure, mean (SD), mm Hg Body mass index, median (IQR) Duration of hypertension, mean (SD) [range], y Change in rate, % (SE) JAMA and the Archives Journals use a conversion footnote to indicate how to convert values
