(based on Parikh, Pencina, Wang, Benjamin, Lanier, Levy, D'Agostino, Kannel, Vasan. 'A Risk Score for Predicting Near-Term Incidence of Hypertension: The Framingham Heart Study', Annals of Internal Medicine 2008)
Incidence of hypertension (systolic blood pressure above 140 mmHg, diastolic blood pressure above 90 mmHg or antihypertensive treatment)
Duration of follow-up
Average of 4-years; 1, 2 and 4-year risks
Population of interest
Non-hypertensive white individuals 20 to 69 years of age without diabetes at baseline
Weibull Regression Model
(Scale = 0.87692, Intercept = 22.94954)
The 4-year risk can be calculated as
Women (sex=1) vs. men (sex=0).
* Per category increment (1 parent or both parents) versus no parental hypertension as the reference category.
**Estimated regression coefficient.
