Table 1 Distribution of US adults by population quartiles of lipid accumulation product and body mass index. Table shows number of survey participants and corresponding population estimates (millions, in parentheses). Participants identified in the bold-print cells are concordant for their quartile assignment both to LAP and BMI.

From: The "lipid accumulation product" performs better than the body mass index for recognizing cardiovascular risk: a population-based comparison
