    • Description:
      Multiple cause-of-death data--that is, records of all medical conditions listed on death certificates--are used to study hypertension mortality in New York State during 1968-82. Mortality rates based on underlying causes for ischemic heart disease (IHD) and stroke are selected for comparison. During 1968-78, white women showed the largest age-adjusted decline of all race-sex groups for hypertension, as white men did for stroke and nonwhite men did for IHD. White men showed the largest age-adjusted decline for all three diseases for 1979-82. In general, declines in hypertension death rates are more comparable to declines in stroke mortality than to IHD mortality.
