Rank variables for the non-laboratory-based risk score are plotted against rank variables for the Framingham (2008) CVD score for adults 25 to 74 years old with complete data in the aggregate study population. Larger ranks indicate greater CVD risk. Based on a risk threshold that corresponds to 10-year Framingham (2008) CVD risk >20%, 92.3% of men (panel a, shaded regions) and 94.0% of women (panel b, shaded regions) would be similarly characterized as high or low risk by the non-laboratory-based and Framingham (2008) CVD risk scores.
