Additional file 3: of An epigenetic clock analysis of race/ethnicity, sex, and coronary heart disease

Epigenetic age acceleration in Hispanics versus country of residence in the WHI. Each column corresponds to different measure of age acceleration: (A, D) age acceleration residual, (B, E) IEAA (C, F) EEAA. (A-C, first row) results for “country of birth” (x-axis). (D-F, second row) results for “country of residence” at age 35 years, which was defined by combining two variables country of birth and “living in the US at age 35.” The left-most bar corresponds to Hispanic women who were born outside the US and lived outside the US at age 35 years, the middle bar corresponds to Hispanic women who were born outside the US but lived already in the US at the age of 35 years; the right-most bar reports results for women who were born in the US and lived in the US at age 35 years. Incidentally, all of these postmenopausal Hispanic women lived in the US at the age of the blood draw. As a caveat, we mention the relatively small group sizes (small gray numbers underneath the bars). (PDF 3 kb)
