Blocks, Ovals, or People Icons in Icon Array Risk Graphics? (Sept-15)

Imagine that you are concerned about your risk for heart disease. You look on the Web and find a risk calculator for heart disease.

The calculator asks you some questions about your health and uses your answers to estimate how likely you are to develop certain diseases. The health questions include things like age, gender, weight, height, whether you are a smoker, and whether you have diabetes or high blood pressure.

Imagine that you have answered all the health questions.
