Overall males comprised 72.4% of cases and had a significantly lower Mean age at incidence than women 59.6 (SD 13.3) years versus 65.4 (SD 12.6) years]. The male:female incidence ratio was 2.63. The age-standardized Myocardial infarction incidence rate was 73.3 per 100 000 in country (95% Cl: 72.3%-74.3%) and varied Signifitantly from 24.5 to 152.5 per 100 000 across the I.ji provirites.
