    The purpose of this study was to review cardiovascular mortality, morbidity, and risk factors in the multiethnic population of the Northwest Territories, Canada.


    We analyzed death certificates and hospital records, and used a community health and examination survey.


    The age-standardized mortality rate for ischemic heart disease (but not for other heart diseases or stroke) among the Northwest Territories population was lower than among the Canadian population.
