Trends in ischemic heart disease deaths--United States, 1990-1994.


In 1994, a total of 481,458 persons died as a result of ischemic heart disease (IHD), which comprises two thirds of all heart diseases--the leading cause of death in the United States. This report presents trends in IHD mortality in the United States for 1990-1994 (the latest year for which data are available) and compares these trends by race, sex, and state. These findings indicate IHD death rates decreased from 1990 through 1994; however, the rate of decline was slower than rates of previously observed declines.
