Abbreviation: MSA = metropolitan statistical area.
* Deaths per 100,000 population, age-adjusted to the 2000 U.S. standard population.
† Heart disease–related deaths were those with underlying cause of death coded as I00–I09, I11, I13, and I20–I51 in the International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Revision.
§ Urbanization level is based on the Office of Management and Budget’s February 2013 delineation of MSAs, in which each MSA must have at least one urban area of ≥50,000 inhabitants. Areas with <50,000 inhabitants are grouped into the rural category.
In 2019, the age-adjusted death rate from heart disease among adults aged 45–64 years was 121.1 per 100,000 and was higher in rural counties (160.0) than urban counties (114.5). Among men, the age-adjusted death rate from heart disease was 221.4 in rural counties and 165.1 in urban counties. Among women, the age-adjusted death rate from heart disease was 99.5 in rural counties and 66.8 in urban counties. In each urbanization level, the rate was higher for men than for women.
