Methods: A cross-sectional study was conducted among 29,359 Chinese adults aged ≥20 years. All participants were randomly recruited from two urban communities in Beijing and asked to complete a self-administered questionnaire that enquired about the demographic characteristics as well as the diagnosis of CAD and CAD-related symptoms.
Results: In all, 26,166 participants completed the questionnaire, with the response rate being 89.1%. The prevalence of diagnosed CAD was 9.0% among men and 7.2% among women, with a total prevalence of 8.1%. Furthermore, 11.5% of the investigated subjects had CAD-related symptoms. Women had a lower risk of developing wheezing, cough, dyspnea, and diagnosed CAD than men (P},
