Figure. Prevalence of cardiovascular disease risk factors among people identified as having low socioeconomic status (annual household income of <$25,000), by community affluence. Community affluence was categorized according to county median household income: low ($23,041–$39,992 [21 counties]); medium ($40,658–$54,909 [22 counties]); and high ($55,258–$99,522 [21 counties]).
