Trends in cardio vascular mortality in spanish surnamed other white and black persons in texas usa 1970 1975

, : Trends in cardio vascular mortality in spanish surnamed other white and black persons in texas usa 1970 1975. Circulation 64(4): 730-735

Certain categories of cardiovascular disease have significantly declined recently as causes of death. The variation in cardiovascular mortality in Texas is described by ethnicity, age and sex during 1970-1975 using age-standardized, proportional mortality ratios. Specifically, the question of whether the three major ethnic groups in Texas have shared equally in any changes in cardiovascular mortality is examined. Several subcategories of cardiovascular mortality are considered. Among the sex-ethnic groups both ischemic heart disease and acute myocardial infarction mortality declined less among Spanish-surnamed males and females than in their other white and black counterparts. Chronic ischemic heart disease increased in relative importance for all groups except Spanish-surnamed females, in whom it decreased. There was no significant decrease in cerebrovascular disease mortality among Spanish-surnamed males or females as there was in the other groups. Important differences in cause-structure of mortality apparently are occurring in the ethnic subpopulations of Texas.
