This data set contains information about 391 subjects who were interviewed and examined in a study to understand the “prevalence of obesity, diabetes, and other cardiovascular risk factors in central Virginia for African Americans.” (J.B. Schorling) Only those subjects whose glycosolated hemoglobin level was measured are included.
The data were used in a study by J.P. Willems, J.T. Saunders, D.E. Hunt, and J.B. Schorling, published in “Prevalence of coronary heart disease risk factors among rural blacks: A community-based study”, Southern Medical Journal 90:814-820; 1997, and in another study by J.B. Schorling, J. Roach, M. Siegel, N. Baturka, D. E. Hunt, T. M. Guterbock, and H. L. Stewart, published in “A trial of church-based smoking cessation interventions for rural African Americans. Preventive Medicine 26:92-101; 1997.” The data were collected by some of the researchers for these studies.
