dc.description.abstract During survey of a representative sample of the lebanese population, serum cholesterol level was determined on 913 persons. Mean cholesterol level was found to be 225.6 mg%. After mean adjustment for age, mean cholesterol for the entire lebanese population ages 10 years or more would be 201.1 mg%, mean HDL-cholesterol level 46.5 mg% and the average total cholesterol over HDL-cholesterol ratio 4.7. It is noteworthy that 68.8% of our population have a serum cholesterol level higher than 200 mg% en_US
