  1. Cardiovascular risk factors and educational attainment in Southern Spain : A study of a random sample of 3091 adults.

    Article - En anglais

    Study objective

    Design

    Participants 

    A total of 1514 men and 1577 women aged between 18 and 65 years was included in the study.

    Rate of response to the questionnaire was 61%. Seventy-eight percent of the respondents provided a blood sample.

    A telephone survey on a representative sample of non-respondents (n=347), showed no statistical differences in the level of studies.

    Measurements 

    We asked for educational level (highest schooling qualification completed), and according to the WHO MONICA protocol we measured : blood pressure, cigarette smoking, height, weight and total cholesterol. tryglicerides and HDL-cholesterol.

    We also obtained the leisure-time physical activity by a validated questionnaire.

    Main results 

    In a context of a low level of schooling, mainly among the older age groups, the prevalence of risk factors - except smoking in women - is higher in the lower educational levels. (...)
