Public health officials would be more eager to intervene in a man with a 20% absolute risk for an event than in an individual who had a 2% absolute risk. The frequency of such a risk profile is also an issue, since it is easier to develop cardiac prevention strategies when a sizeable proportion of the population are candidates, their absolute risk is high, and therapy can reduce the relative risk of a cardiovascular event.
