CHD includes acute MI (I21, I22), other acute ischemic (coronary) heart disease (I24), AP (I20), atherosclerotic CVD (I25.0), and all other forms of ischemic CHD (I25.1–I25.9). Ellipses indicate data not available. Sources: Prevalence: NHANES 2005–2006 (NCHS) and NHLBI. Total data are for Americans ≥20 years of age; percentages for racial/ethnic groups are age adjusted for ≥20 years of age. These data are based on self-reports. Estimates from NHANES 2005–2006 (NCHS) applied to 2006 population estimates (≥20 years of age). Incidence: ARIC (1987–2004), NHLBI. Mortality: NCHS (these data represent underlying cause of death only). Hospital discharges: NHDS, NCHS (data include those inpatients discharged alive, dead, or status unknown). Cost: NHLBI; data include estimated direct and indirect costs for 2009.
*Mortality data are for whites and blacks and include Hispanics.
†NHIS, NCHS 2007—data are weighted percentages for Americans ≥18 years of age. Estimates for American Indians/Alaska Natives are considered unreliable.1
‡These percentages represent the portion of total CHD mortality that is for males vs females.
§Estimates include Hispanics and non-Hispanics. Estimates for whites include other nonblack races.
