Thanks Erskine, interesting.
No, from that point of view Framingham is more valid in much of S.E. England, but there are areas where (for example) there are a majority of people originally from India, who have genetic disorders of their own which skew the figures, and in some parts of London, large numbers of people of Caribbean origin.
So, there's a project for you. Write an updated version of Framingham, and your name will live on.
Mind, as in all things up-to-date figures matter. My GP gave me a score of 20% plus, which worried me until I ran my own Framingham Risk with updated figures as to cholesterol and BP, and dropped below 10%. (It's okay, I'm not getting complacent. With a calcium score of around 4000 (four and three zeros) I will continue to be cautious).
