3.3 The Framingham Heart Study: Evaluating Risk Factors to Save Lives

Video 4: Validating the Model

In this video, we mention that the Framingham Risk Model was tested on diverse cohorts. The original Framingham Risk Model was actually computed by a different sort of regression, called a Cox Proportional Hazards Model. This method is different but related to logistic regression, and it will return a similar estimate of 10-year CHD risk.
