Variations in mortality in Middle Dalmatia, Croatia.
International conference on information technology interfaces. Pula, HRV, 1998/06/16.
Based on data from an epidemiological-longitudinal study, which started in 1969, with follow-ups in 1972 and 1982, we estimated survival and hazard functions in coastal cities of Split and Omis, Croatia, from 1972 to 1997.
Log-rank test showed significant difference between survival functions for both gender (p=0.0001) and city (p=0.0246).
The difference between the cities was significant within the female cohort (p=0.0239), but not within the male cohort (p=0.2889).
The estimates of hazard ratio based on the Cox-regression model indicated that the men had 73% greater hazard than the women, and Omis had 35% greater hazard than Split.
One year difference in the age at the beginning of the study was estimated to change the hazard by 11%.
