Hi Yulissa, thanks for the question.

I actually don't think that more like than signals proportionality. If anything it is literally just telling you that there is a higher likelihood of right-side strokes being undiagnosed compared to left-side strokes.

Proportionality will be clearly signaled whenever it occurs. It will typically use this exact word to make it known.
