Abstract The results of 15 yr of follow-up of white males at risk in the Los Angeles Heart Study are reported. The total number of new cases of coronary heart disease is divided into 2 groups: (i) persons who were diagnosed myocardial infarction, or sudden death (MI), and (ii) persons who were diagnosed as angina pectoris (AP). The risk factors studied were age, serum cholesterol level, blood pressure and wt. index. Two techniques of analysis, the classical method and discriminant function analysis, are used and compared. In both methods of data analysis high serum cholesterol is clearly associated with the development of MI. None of the 3 factors studied had an appreciable influence on AP.
