 Risk factors are described in two ways:

       mean and standard deviation, if reported, are shown at left
       percentages are shown at right, or singularly, together with risk factor value equal to or greater than threshold
       value or with specific condition. Bar graphs are used to represent percentages, defined as prevalence.
       values for women are indicated in red color, for men in blue
       data for general population refer to the age range 35-74 years
       the age range chosen for elderly is 65-74 years
       the age range chosen for menopausal women is 50-74 years
       the global absolute cardiovascular risk is calculated for the age range 35-69 years and for persons having not
       experienced a recent cardiovascular event.
