Fig. 4

Calibration plots of the Framingham Wilson, ATP III and PCE models. Each line represents one external validation. The diagonal line represents perfect agreement between observed and predicted risks. All points below that line indicate that more events were predicted than observed (overprediction) and points above the line indicate fewer events were predicted than observed (underprediction). The vertical black line represents a treatment threshold of 7.5% [68].
