To report levels of cardiovascular risk factors in 1985,1990 and 1995 in three population samples in Göteborg, Sweden, and to compare with previous population risk factor levels.
The study was performed within the framework of the WHO MONICA Project which compares risk factor levels as well as the incidence of coronary heart disease and stroke in 38 populations.
Three random samples of men and women aged 25-34,35-44,45-54 and 55-64 comprising 152-218 subjects in each age group who responded to the invitation for screening procedures which included questionnaires, physical and laboratory investigations in 1985,1990 and 1995.
More men than women had smoked, except for those aged 35-44 where there was no difference between men and women.
The proportion of men who had smoked decreased strongly between the first and third investigations (P<0.0001), particularly amongst the younger age-groups, with a similar tendency amongst women.
In the 25-44-years age group there was a tendency towards more women than men to be smokers in 1995.
Snuff was used by 27% and 19% of men aged 25-34 and 35-44 years, respectively, in 1995.
Up to 5% of women used snuff ; higher in the younger age groups.
More young men than women reported regular physical activity during leisure time with a tendency towards an increase from 1985 to 1995. (...)
