General olfactory acuity. a-f, Olfactory acuity ranks for different demographic groups are shown and compared. Each subject was assigned a rank between 1 and 391, with 391 signifying the highest, or best, olfactory acuity. Subjects are represented by grey dots and the median and first and third quartile of each group are shown. A two-tailed Mann–Whitney test (*p<0.05; **p<0.01; ***p<0.001; n.s.: not significant) was performed to test the differences for statistical significance (Ns: < 35 years: 195; > 35 years: 196; Women: 210; Men: 181; Underweight: 28; Just Right: 202; Overweight: 149; Asians: 31; African-Americans: 97; Caucasians: 178; Non-Hispanic: 305; Hispanic: 77; Non-Smokers: 290; Smokers: 92). Subjects were divided by age according to the median of 34.6 years, which is rounded to 35 years for labeling the figure.
