The article offers information on a study conducted by the authors related to neighborhood disparities in death due to myocardial infarction (MI) and stroke in Tennessee. It states that MI and stroke mortality data was obtained from the Tennessee Department of Health and logistic models were used to know neighborhood socioeconomic predictors of identified clusters. It reports that annual stroke mortality ranged from 0 to 182 and MI mortality from 0 to 243, both per 100,000 population.
