Table 3 Comparison between CVD risk estimation using DAD and Framingham equations

From: Assessment of cardiovascular risk factors in people with HIV infection treated with ART in rural South Africa: a cross sectional study

Cardiovascular disease risk FRAMINGHAM (N = 164)
Low risk (<10 %) Moderate risk (10–20 %) High risk (>20 %)
DAD (N = 164)    
 Low risk (<10 %) 113 0 0
 Moderate risk (1–5 %) 37 8 0
 High risk and very high risk (>5 %) 3 3 0
Agreement 73.8 %
Kappa (p-value) 0.23 (0.001)
95 % CI for Kappa 0.10–0.35
  DAD risk estimations on all participants
Low risk (<1 %) Moderate risk (1–5 %) High risk (5.1–10 %) Very high risk (>10 %)
All participants (N = 214) 143 (66.8 %) 62 (29 %) 4 (1.9 %) 5 (2.3 %)
