Background and Purpose-The Greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky Stroke Study was designed to be the first large, population-based metropolitan study of temporal trends in stroke incidence rates and outcome within a biracial population.
Methods-We are identifying all hospitalized and autopsied cases ofstroke and transient ischemic attack (TIA) among the 1.3 million inhabitants of a five-county region of Greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky for the period 7/1/93-6/30/94.
We have already prospectively monitored for out-of-hospital stroke and TIAs for this same time period at 128 screening sites, including a random sample of all primary care physicians and nursing homes in the region.
We have already identified all hospitalized and autopsied cases of stroke and TIA among blacks for 1/1/93-6/30/93 and report preliminary incidence rates for this 6-month period.
The overall incidence rate for all first-ever hospitalized or autopsied stroke (excluding TIAs) among blacks in the Greater Cincinnati region was 288 per 100 000 (95% Cl, 250 to 325, age-and sex-adjusted to 1990 US population).
The overall incidence rate for first-ever and recurrent stroke (excluding TIAs) was 411 per 100 000 (95% CI, 366 to 456).
By comparison, the overall incidence rate of first-ever stroke among whites in Rochester, Minn, during the period 1985-1989 was 179 per 100 000 (95% CI, 164 to 194, age-and-sex adjusted to 1990 US population). (...)
