Abstract

A cohort consisting of 3602 residents (82.8% of the target population) aged 35 years and older was established in 1990 in the Chin-Shan Community, a suburb 20 miles outside of metropolitan Taipei, Taiwan. The long-term objective was to investigate the prospective impact on cardiovascular health in a society undergoing transition from a developing to a developed nation. This article presents the study design, selected baseline risk factors of cardiovascular diseases (CVD), and CVD events at the 5-year follow-up evaluation with an emphasis on sociodemographic differences. The multivariate logistic regression analyses revealed that white-collar individuals were more likely than blue-collar workers to have dyslipidemia including high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) levels <35 mg/dl [odds ratio (OR) = 1.7, 95%confidence interval (CI) = 1.2-2.4] and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) levels greater than or equal to 160 mg/dl (OR = 13, 95% CI = 1.0-1.7). However, they were at slightly lower risk for stroke and CVD/sudden death, and at moderately higher risk for coronary artery disease and diabetes, although both these trends were not significant. Men were more likely than women to have HDL-C levels <35 mg/dl (OR = 1.8, 95% CI = 1.4-2.2), but they were less likely to have LDL-C levels greater than or equal to 160 mg/dl (OR = 0.7, 95% CI = 0.6-0.8). The risk of CVD/sudden death was higher formen than for women during the follow-up period (OR = 1.9, 95% CI = 1.3-2.9). This could be due to risk factors such as a much higher prevalence of tobacco (61.9% vs. 4.5%) and alcohol (43.7% vs. 6.4%) use in men. In conclusion, individuals of higher socioeconomic status have a higher prevalence of dyslipidemia but slightly lower 5-year incidence of CVD events. (C) 2000 Elsevier Science, Inc.
