This paper examines the effects of community-wide health education on diet-related knowledge and behavior and on plasma cholesterol levels during an experimental field study in medium-sized cities in northern California.
Samples of the population aged 12-74 years were drawn at baseline and every 2 years thereafter to obtain four cross-sectional surveys; participants aged 25-74 years are included in this paper (n=6,814 or about 425 per city per survey).
The baseline sample was asked to retum to three follow-up surveys, also 2 years apart, constituting the cohort survey sample (n=777).
Diet was assessed by 24-hour recalls.
