The earliest childhood and latest adulthood measurements with a mean ± SD follow-up period of 11.6 ± 3.4 years were used;

specific for age, race, sex, and survey year (only those without clustering at baseline [n = 718] were included);

for developing clustering (defined as in Table 1) in adulthood;
