Cholesterol Tracking; Prediction over Time of Serum Cholesterol in Evans County. GA.
Fasting serum cholesterol was determined in 1960 and 1967 on 2530 subjects representing the biracial community of Evans County, under C.D.C. laboratory control and employing the Abell-Kendall method (1). For each age-race-sex cohort, mean serum cholesterol increased over the seven years of follow-up, as a function of age and body mass (exemplified for males in Figure 1).
