  1. Behavior risk factors of chippewa Indians living on Wisconsin reservations.

    Article - En anglais

    Behavioral risk factors and chronic disease death rates vary markedly among the numerous American Indian tribes.

    Local data on prevalence of risk factors are important in determining effective community-based interventions.

    The authors conducted an in-person survey to ascertain the prevalence of behavioral risk factors among members of the Chippewa tribe living on reservations in Wisconsin.

    A total of 465 Chippewa adults were randomly selected from tribal registries and invited to participate in the study.

    Of these, 175 (38 percent) participated.
