Abstract

Incorrect Methods Study Population Between 2006 and 2008, 2,381 Japanese men 40 to 79 years of age were randomly selected based on age strata from Kusatsu City, Japan and sent an invitation to participate in the baseline survey of the Shiga Epidemiological Study of Subclinical Atherosclerosis (SESSA). Of these men, 1,096 agreed to participate. The population of 40-to 79-year-old men in Kusatsu city was 25,394 in April 2005. Therefore, the extraction rate was 9.4% (2,381/25,394), and the participation rate in this survey was 46% (1,096/2,381) for men. Correct Methods Study Population Between 2006 and 2008, 2,379 Japanese men 40 to 79 years of age were randomly selected based on age strata from Kusatsu City, Japan and sent an invitation to participate in the baseline survey of the Shiga Epidemiological Study of Subclinical Atherosclerosis (SESSA). Of these men, 1,094 agreed to participate. The population of 40-to 79-year-old men in Kusatsu city was 25,394 in April 2005. Therefore, the extraction rate was 9.4% (2,379/25,394), and the participation rate in this survey was 46% (1,094/2,379) for men.
