Review Measure

Essential Measures are only those items that are critical to the collection of the Measure or are necessary for the interpretation of results. Essential Measures are integral to the Measure. Without such information the data collected would be incomplete and/or misleading.
An additional PhenX Measure that the user may find helpful based on the selection of a particular PhenX Measure. Related PhenX Measures can include additional Measures that are needed to calculate a Derived Variable (e.g., Weight and Height are needed to calculate BMI), Measures that are commonly used in presentations and publications to present the value of the chosen Measures (e.g., Height and Weight by Race and Ethnicity), Measures that are conceptually related to the chosen Measure (e.g., Current Educational Attainment is conceptually related to Annual Family Income and Arm Span is conceptually related to Height), Measures that are physiologically and/or biologically related to the chosen Measure (e.g., Stroke and Heart Disease). Related PhenX Measures are suggestions only.
The Collections are an alternative to the research domains for browsing the PhenX Measures. Measures that are related by a specific topic are grouped together.

Measure: History of Stroke - Ischemic Infarction and Hemorrhage   #130300


A questionnaire to determine if the respondent has had an ischemic infarction (i.e. stroke) and/or any symptoms related to this event.


This measure is used to determine whether an individual has had a stroke and to assess the associated complications. Stroke, a loss of brain function due to disrupted blood flow, is the most common debilitating neurological condition in the United States and is the third leading cause of death. Stroke etiology is influenced both by genetic and environmental factors, and risk factors include increasing age, systolic blood pressure, diabetes, atrial fibrillation, male gender, smoking, and cardiovascular disease (Aminoff et al., 2005, Wolf et al., 1991).
