The Chatham Blood Pressure Study. An application of Bayesian growth curve models to a longitudinal study of blood pressure in children.
Darby SC., Fearn T.
Recent developments in statistics have produced powerful methods that facilitate the analysis of longitudinal studies. These methods are illustrated by an analysis of a longitudinal study of blood pressure in children. The results of the study show a clear tendency for blood pressure to increase with age, and Asian children tend to have lower blood pressures than their Caucasian counterparts of the same age. There is evidence to support the hypothesis that blood pressures track.
