The role of age in cardiovascular risk factor clustering in non-diabetic population free of coronary heart disease.

Eur. J. Epidemiol. 2004 19 (4): 299-304, PMID: 15180099

The objectives were to analyse whether cardiovascular risk factors appear simultaneously in the population and to determine whether it depends on age. The participants belong to a random sample of individuals 25-74 years of age, representative of the non-diabetic population free of coronary heart disease of the province of Gerona, Spain, studied during 1994-1996. Exploratory factor analysis was used to assess clustering of cardiovascular risk factors and confirmatory factor analysis to compare clustering among age groups (25-54 and 55-74).
