Relevant Population Characteristics for Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) Deaths

Relevant Population Characteristics

Age, gender, and socioeconomic risk factors are related to coronary heart disease (CHD) deaths. Advanced age is the major risk factor for CHD deaths. Although CHD is the leading cause of death in women, men have a higher CHD death rate than women in all age groups. In Utah in 2013-2014, African American/Black Utahns had a higher CHD death rate than any other racial or ethnic group. The group with the highest rate may change year-to-year, but African American/Blacks consistently have high rates. Native Hawaiians/Pacific Islander and Hispanic Utahns also have high rates. Rates tend to be lowest for Utahns who are American Indian/Alaskan Native or Asian.
