Proposed Collection: The Hispanic Community Health Study/Study of Latinos (HCHS/SOL), Revised, National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI), National Institutes of Health (NIH).
Need and Use of Information Collection: The purpose and use of the information collection for this project is to study the prevalence of cardiovascular and pulmonary disease and other chronic diseases, and their risk and protective factors, understand their relationship to all-cause, cardiovascular and pulmonary morbidity and mortality, and understand the role of sociocultural factors (including acculturation) on the prevalence or onset of disease among over 16,400 Hispanics/Latinos of diverse origins, aged 18-74 years at enrollment, living in four U.S. communities: San Diego, California; Chicago, Illinois; Miami, Florida, and the Bronx, New York. In order to achieve these objectives, the HCHS/SOL had two integrated components:
1. Examination of the cohort following a standardized protocol, which consisted of interviews and clinical measurements to assess physiological and biochemical measurements including DNA/RNA extraction for ancillary genetic research studies.
2. Follow-up of the cohort, which consists of an annual telephone interview to assess vital status, changes in health status and medication intake, and new cardiovascular and pulmonary events (including fatal and non-fatal myocardial infarction and heart failure; fatal and non-fatal stroke; and exacerbation of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease).
OMB approval is requested for 3 years. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 30,940.
