High levels of cholesterol and triglyceride are known to be strongly associated with development of cardiac problem in patients of type 2 diabetes. In a hospital-based study, patients showing ECG positive were compared with those who were not. The observations on cholesterol and triglyceride were considered for estimation of risk for developing the cardiac problem. The technique of density estimation employing Epanechnikov kernel was used for estimating bivariate probability density functions with respect to observations on cholesterol and triglyceride of the two groups. Using the odds form of Bayes’ rule, the estimates of posterior odds were computed.
