Questionnaires and physical examinations were completed to collect data. Education level was indicated as degree of education and length of schooling. Analysis of Variance and logistic regression were used for data analysis. Results Significant differences of waist circumstance,systolic blood pressure,diastolic blood pressure and fasting blood glucose were found among respondents with different education level ( all P ＜ 0.05 ).Lower education level was positively associated with risk of MS when adjusted for cigarette smoking,alcohol consumption,food intake,medical history of critical illness and genetic disease,socioeconomic status,and stress.After adjustment for age,the effect wasn't significant anymore.Conclusion Education level may show important effects on MS among women.
