Coronary risk in a British Punjabi population : comparative profile of non-biochemical factors.
Measurements Data were collected on socioeconomic circumstances, smoking, diet, alcohol, exercise, past health, perceptions of stress and other psychological morbidity, blood pressure, height, weight and waist and hip girth.
Results The socioeconomic circumstances of the South Asian group were worse than the general population.
The prevalence of several circumstances potentially associated with stress, such as length of working day, low income, crowded housing, liability to attack and perceived lack of social support (women), was greater in South Asians.
Smoking was less common in South Asians, particularly among women and non-Muslims.
Amongst South Asians, alcohol use was uncommon in women and Muslims.
