The Minnesota Heart Health Program is a 13-year research and demonstration project to reduce morbidity and mortality from coronary heart disease in whole communities in the upper Midwest.
Six communities were selected for the study: three intervention and three comparison sites, matched to increase baseline comparability.
After 2-4 years of baseline observations, a 5- to 6-year program of intensive intervention was introduced in the three intervention communities.
Periodic cross-sectional and cohort surveys provided data on risk factors and related behaviors.
Regression adjustments within and between communities reduced the confounding influences of important covariates and the variance inflation associated with the nesting of individuals within communities and surveys.
