Appendix 2 (Chapter 5) – Number of men sampled in The Seven Countries Study

The following table documents the number of men in each cohort (table I.2, p.I-7) [19] and the number of men who participated in a 7-day diary food sample process, as documented in the main dietary document for The Seven Countries Study [189]. There were no data for the Japanese or Rome cohorts and these were excluded from figures in Volume XVII [182] indicating that dietary information was not available.

Dalmatia and Slavonia were calculated as the average of four samples (table 1, p.113) [189]. For USA railroad men, dietary sampling was reported as “recall interview of all men” (p.I-6) [19]. Finland, east and west, were reported (table 6, p.35) [189]. Crevalcore and Montegiorgio were reported (table 3, p.72) [189]. Zutphen sampling was calculated [189] as an average of 3 samples (table 1, p.89). Crete was calculated as an average of 3 samples and Corfu as an average of 2 samples (table 3, p.60) [189]. The three Yugoslavian cohorts of Velika Krsna, Zrenjanin and Belgrade were calculated from: (table 1, p.149), an average of two samples; (table 2, p.150), an average of two samples; and (table 3, p.151) from one sample [189].
