In Sweden, there are large differences in the incidence of myocardial infarction (MI) among occupational groups.
These differences may to some extent be due to work environment factors, including psychosocial job strain.
The aim of the present study was to estimate the relative risk (RR) of MI for Swedish men and women in high strain occupations as compared to those in low strain occupations.
The association between job strain and MI was studied by case-control methods.
The study base comprised the population of four Swedish counties from 1976-1981 and of Stockholm county from 1976-1984.
Incident cases of MI were identified through hospital discharges together with deaths.
