National map of county-level heart disease death rates, ages 35 and older, 1999-2003.

This national map of age-adjusted and spatially smoothed heart disease death rates at the county level, for ages 35 and older, indicates that during the years 1999-2003 the counties with the highest heart disease death rates (i.e. in the top quintile) were located primarily in southern Appalachian states, states along the lower Mississippi River Valley, parts of Alabama and Georgia, and much of Oklahoma.  Counties with the lowest heart disease death rates ( i.e. lowest quintile) are located primarily in the western half of the country and parts of the northern plains.
