Abstract

Age-adjusted mortality rates and trends from coronary heart disease (CHD) in Minnesota for the years 1960 to 1980 differed among eight health service areas. Regression of ten socio-economic and demographic factors and intensive care and coronary care unit beds on area CHD mortality levels revealed a significant positive association only for levels of welfare income-maintenance assistance with CHD mortality levels; there were no associations with trends. Further studies are needed to explain variation within states of CHD mortality rate levels and trends.
