Abstract

Seven national 2020 Strategic Impact Goals for cardiovascular health (Life's Simple 7 [LS7]) estimates for major ethnic/racial groups are available, but not for diverse Hispanics/Latinos. Herein, we describe and examine LS7 profiles of diverse Hispanic/Latino groups. Methods: HCHS/SOL (analytic n = 15,825; ages 18-74 years) data were used to estimate LS7 metrics. LS7 metrics were operationalized as Ideal, Intermediate, or Poor and indexed as an additive score. We calculated Hispanic/Latino group and sex-specific prevalence estimates for LS7 metrics and used survey-based regression models to examine (1) associations between LS7 scores and pertinent sociocultural characteristics and (2) relationships between LS7 scores and coronary heart disease, and stroke and transient ischemic attacks prevalence. Results: Few HCHS/SOL participants met all 7 Ideal LS7 criteria (
