The gender differential in mortality from all causes, cardiovascular disease (CVD). ischaemic heart disease (IHD) and stroke during the mean follow-up of 11.6 years (range 10-14) was examined among 4696 men and 5714 women aged 45-64 at entry in West of Scotland.
Overall mortality was 19.4/1000 person-years of observation among men and 10.8/1000 person-years among women.
A multiple logistic regression model was used to control the influence of gender, along with seven other cardiovascular risk factors simultaneously.
The risk factors considered were age, systolic (SBP) and diastolic blood pressure (DBP), serum cholesterol, casual blood glucose, body mass index (BMI) and cigarette smoking.
