Trends in the incidence of and mortality from coronary heart disease during the period 1983-1988 were assessed in the population aged 35-64 years in three areas of Finland.
The official mortality statistics and the FINMONICA (Finnish portion of the World Health Organization MONICA (Monitoring of Trends and Determinants in Cardiovascular Disease) project) Acute Myocardial Infarction Register were used as data sources.
They both showed that coronary heart disease mortality declined steeply in Finnish men and women.
