Figure 1. The age-standardized incidence of first MI events in 1991-2003 in Finland. (Data expressed as rate/100,000)
1991 1992 1993 1994 1995 1996 1997 1998 1999 2000 2001 2002 2003

Women 176 168 160 152 144 138 124 132 119 125 123 116 112

The annual average decline was 4.9% (95% CI -5.2% to -4.5%) from 1991 to 1997 and 2.1% (95% CI -2.5% to -1.8%) from 1998 to 2003 among men. The respective changes among women were -5.2% (95% CI -5.8% to -4.7%) and -2.1% (95%CI -2.7% to -1.5%).
