Background Mortality from stroke has declined in many countries.
This decline may result from a fall in incidence of stroke or a decrease in case fatality from stroke.
The present study was conducted to investigate the temporal trends of incidence rate, mortality rate, and case fatality of stroke in an urban and rural Chinese population.
Methods A community-based registry study was established in 1983 in defined rural and urban areas of Shanghai with a population aged 35 to 74 years of approximately 86 000 subjects, adhering to the methods and definitions of the World Health Organization MONICA protocol.
All stroke events occurring in the population aged 35 to 74 years in these areas were registered by a special three-level case-registration system.
