In Reply We thank Reddy for his commendation of our report examining risk factors for incident stroke in black and white men and women in the US National Reasons for Geographic and Racial Differences in Stroke (REGARDS) cohort study.1 His comments align with our call for more epidemiologic studies to report sex-specific and race/ethnicity-specific research findings. Other epidemiologic studies, including the Cardiovascular Health Study2 and the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities study,3 examined sex differences in the association of risk factors with cardiovascular outcomes (but not stroke alone) in blacks and white individuals, the racial groups included in those cohorts.
