Stroke mortality has decreased during the last decade in many industrialized countries, but there has been no clear evidence for a decline in the incidence of stroke.
The present study analyzes the trends in the incidence, mortality and case-fatality of stroke in Finland from 1983 to 1989.
We used data from the FINMONICA stroke register, a community based register collecting information on all suspected stroke cases aged 25-74 in three geographical areas of Finland.
Annual attack rate, incidence, mortality and case-fatality rates were calculated for all strokes and for different subcategories of stroke.
A linear regression model was applied to calculate the yearly trends of these rates.
