Relative and absolute inequalities in AMI incidence according to level of education by gender and age group: a CVDNOR project.

Abbreviations:

AMI, Acute myocardial infarction.

AASIR, Average age-standardised incident rate between 2001 and 2009.

IRR, Incidence rate ratio from Poisson regression.

RII, relative index of inequality. Ratio between rates at the upper 100th- and lower 0th %-end of the education scale.

SII = slope index of inequality, absolute difference in rate per 100 000 between the upper 100th %- and lower 0th %-end of the education scale.

IRR, RII and SII are adjusted for age and calendar year in each gender- and age strata. Total model also adjusted for gender.

*Person-years for the total population at risk of getting an incident AMI.
