The question is really 'what are the Framingham equation'? In that the
Framingham study has published a whole raft of risk prediction equations for
coronary heart disease, stroke and other stuff. People usually mean the
coronary disease equations. Herewith some of the bewildering variety of
equations produced by the ever-prolific group over the years. Note the
presence of Cornfield and the use of discriminant analysis before logistic
regression was a computer reality!
