The Turkish Adult Risk Factor Study (also called TARF) began as a longitudinal survey of cardiovascular health in 1990, expanding in scope through successive waves. The 2010 wave includes 1406 participants aged 45-74, with 686 receiving an examination and 577 for which information on health status was obtained. Participants were located across all regions in Turkey.
