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, Blacks have a higher CHD death rate than any other racial or ethnic group, although the difference is not statistically significant. Utah racial and ethnic minorities die from CHD at younger average ages compared to Whites.
