Abstract

To examine whether the recent flattening of mortality rates for coronary heart disease (CHD) observed among young adults in the UK and the US is also occurring in the Australian population. Methods Mortality data from 1976 to 2006 were used to calculate overall age-adjusted and age-specific mortality rates for Australian adults aged a?Y 25 years. Joinpoint regression was fitted to estimate the annual change and detect points in time where significant changes in the trends occur.
