The purpose of the present analysis was to determine how lifestyle influences the risk of cerebrovascular disease in women participating in the Copenhagen City Heart Study.
A random sample of a white, lower and middle-class, urban population selected in 1976 was invited to two cardiovascular examinations at 5-year intervals.
The present analysis was based on 7060 women invited to an initial examination from 1976 through 1978, aged 35 years or more, and without previous stroke or transient ischemic attack.
At the initial examination, potential risk factors were recorded.
The 265 first cases of stroke and transient ischemic attack were ascertained at a second examination 5 years later and through hospital records and death certificates through 1988.
