- In the 1978 cohort children were examined approximately twice yearly through their grade school and junior high school years and once yearly during high school. At each examination, measurements of height, weight, and blood pressure were obtained. A post– high school (PH) examination was conducted within 2 years of graduation from high school, at which time blood pressure and anthropometric data were obtained. This group of 817 was recontacted 5 years after the PH visit, and 679 were reexamined in 1993 to 1995 (age, 23.6 years), forming the 1996 sample study. In addition to the anthropometric and blood pressure data, a fasting blood sample was obtained at the 1993 to 1995 visit for insulin, cholesterol, HDL cholesterol (HDL-C),triglycerides, and LDL cholesterol (LDL-C).
