  1. SCORESP was based on total cholesterol and the single reading of systolic blood pressure at the in-office screening program. SCOREEP/BP-first, (SCOREEP/BP-mean) were based on total cholesterol and the first reading (the mean of the second and third reading) of systolic blood pressure at the clinical examination program
  2. Pearson chi2 = 330.996; p < .001, comparison between SCORESP and SCOREEP/BP-first
  3. ††Pearson chi2 = 159.592; p < .001, comparison between SCORESP and SCOREEP/BP-mean
