These subjects were primarily selected to study the relationship between behavior pattern and the risk of coronary hearth disease (CHD). A number of other risk factors were also measured to provide the best possible assessment of the CHD risk associated with behavior type. Additional variables collected include age, height, weight, systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure, cholesterol, smoking, and corneal arcus.
