Reviews of current data reveal major gaps in knowledge about coronary heart disease (CHD) in blacks. Although CHD is the leading cause of death in U.S. blacks, existing prevalence and incidence data are incomplete and, at least on the surface, conflicting. Data from prospective studies of populations containing adequate numbers of blacks from diverse geographic and socioeconomic groups are needed. Such data should include adequately validated, multidisciplinary measurements, including biomedical risk factors and endpoints, socioeconomic status, psychosocial risk factors, and life-style.
