Mauritius and China (Beijing) in 1978-1987.

The aim of study is to report the prevalence of coronary heart disease (CHD) as indicated by ECG Minnesota coding, and risk factor levels and to describe the individual and ecological relationship between CHD prevalence and CHD risk factors among different ethnic groups in developing countries.
Mauritians had the highest prevalence of CHD of these countries.
