Questions on awareness, use, and results of blood cholesterol tests were included in telephone surveys on cancer conducted in 1988 on random samples of persons 40-74 years of age in Long Island, NY (N=440) and in Connecticut (N=453).
Educational level was significantly and positively associated with the proportions reporting ever having heard of blood cholesterol tests, ever having had a test done ( « by a doctor »), and having a recent test, 1987-88, but not with the proportion reportedly having been told by a doctor that their cholesterol level was « high ».
