Abstract

Death rates due to cardiovascular-renal and heart diseases, including coronary heart disease, were moderately lower in middle-aged foreign-born than in all Chicago white males. These rates were considerably higher for the foreign born Chicago males than for age-matched men in the corresponding countries abroad. Coronary heart disease death rates were higher in middle-aged white American males than in Japanese-Americans, and American-Indians, and Chinese-Americans.
