• a. What is the cumulative incidence of CVD over 10 years?
• b. What is the prevalence of CVD at baseline?
• c. What is the prevalence of CVD at 10 years?
A total of 150 participants are selected for a study of risk factors for cardiovascular disease. At baseline (study start), 24 are classified as hypertensive.
