  1. AThe nine hypertension risk factors evaluated are the longitudinal means of total cholesterol (CHOL), cigarettes per day (CPD), alcohol, grams/day (DRINK), fasting glucose (GLUC), high density lipoprotein (HDL), height (HGT), hypertensive treatment (HRX), triglycerides (TRIG), and weight (WGT).
