  1. Fulltext. Stroke mortality and its socioeconomic, racial, and behavioral correlates in Florida.

    Article - En anglais


    Stroke mortality is associated both with being black and with having low socioeconomic status.

    However, it is uncertain to what extent that increased risk is related to rates of behavior-related risk factors, such as hypertension, cigarette smoking, obesity, or alcohol consumption.

    The investigators performed an ecologic analysis to estimate the contributions of behavioral risks, socioeconomic status, and black race to regional variations in stroke mortality rates among persons 55-84 years of age in Florida.

    They used data from the 1980 census and from the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) for 1986 through 1988.
