  1. Geographic distribution of stroke mortality in the United States : 1939-1941 to 1979-1981.

    Article - En anglais

    I used data from the National Center for Health Statistics to map the geographic distribution of age-adjusted, race- and gender-specific stroke mortality rates in the United States from 1939-1941 to 1979-1981.

    Over this interval, stroke mortality rates declined dramatically with convergence of age-adjusted, state-specific stroke rates both within and between the various race-gender groups.

    For each race-gender group, high age-adjusted stroke mortality rates were significantly clustered in the southeastern United States, particularly in the South Atlantic census division, with persistent extreme rates in Georgia and the Carolinas.

    For whites, low-rate states were concentrated in the Mountain census division and along the northern Atlantic coast.
