  1. Changes in coronary heart disease risk factors in the 1980s : evidence of a male-female crossover effect with age.

    Article - En anglais

    The Stanford Five-City Project was initiated in 1978 to evaluate the effects of community-wide health education on coronary heart disease risk factors in two control (San Luis Obispo and Modesto) and two treatment (Monterey and Salinas) cities.

    This paper examines sex differences in the prevalence of smoking, hypercholesterolemia, and hypertension from the baseline survey in 1979-1980 through the conclusion of the intervention in 1985-1986.

    Four independent cross-sectional surveys (n = 1,713, 1,709, 1,848, and 1,768) and four repeated surveys of a cohort (n = 817) were conducted.

    This analysis presents findings separately for a younger age group (25-49 years) and an older age group (50-74 years).
