In a long-term prospective study of the effects of dietary modification on the incidence of coronary heart disease, the characteristics of the subjects were examined to determine whether differences existed between those who remained in the study and those who dropped out. Statistically significant differences were elucidated between these two groups in terms of a cosmopolitan-parochial orientation, some demographic characteristics and how the subjects viewed the study and their role in the research aims. The implications of these findings for future research and public health application of the overall study findings are discussed.
