Ibaraki Prefectural Health Study
Validity of a Risk Prediction Equation for Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is an important health problem for which risk equations have been developed for Western populations. This study aimed to develop and validate a risk prediction equation for CKD in a Japanese population. *Note: All published information has been collected from the article referenced in the Marker Paper box below. Therefore, there may be variations with more advanced versions of the study. *

- Follow Up
- Follow-up information was available from health checkups 20 years after the initial evaluation. To ascertain deaths in the cohort, investigators conducted a systematic review of death certificates. Data from health check-ups and dates of death or moving were obtained from local governments.
