Abstract

The objective of this study is to gauge the risk assessment of varying demographic and socioeconomic populations and to promote efforts to make accessibility to educational and medical resources more available to the public. To achieve this, a risk assessment created for the National Health Service cardiovascular awareness programme will be supplemented to various communities and will test the participants’ knowledge of cardiovascular disease (CVD). The Spearman Rho and Pearson Correlation statistical procedure will be used to identify the strength of the association between the participants economic and ethnic background in regards to their CVD perceived risk. The implications of this project would be to stimulate concerted efforts to increase awareness of CVD. Future work would focus on shifting risk profiles of CVD patients as well as conducting more studies on diverse populations to accommodate their risks for cardiovascular disease. Following the analysis of the 155 profiles, the Pearson correlation value was regarded with a moderate linear correlation within the economic lens. Additionally, the average profiles sustain the hypothesis with African Americans scoring a lowers perceived risk profile of perceived benefits and healthy eating intentions with the relatively lower averages of 2.872 and 3.198 respectively. The resulting data shows potential trends for a stronger correlation to occur within the economic and demographic lenses. The next steps of this project are to increase the sample size as well as diversify population representation to further validate the data.
