  1. Social inequities in cardiovascular disease risk factors in east and West Germany.

    Article - En anglais

    Social class related differences in prevalence of cardiovascular disease risk factors in Germany were investigated with special emphasis on comparisons between East and West Germany and on time trends.

    Databases for West Germany are the first and second National Health Survey (survey 1: N=4794, survey 2: N=5315), carried out in the framework of the German Cardiovascular Prevention Study, and for East Germany the first GDR-MONICA project (N=6125).

    Different social class indices were applied to evaluate social inequities for hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, cigarette smoking, obesity and predicted cardiovascular disease mortality.
