It has been recently observed that mortality in general and for
cardio-vascular conditions specifically follows a pattern of high and low
years (1-2). Had this study used 1999 as the base year the calculated
reduction would have bee higher. Likewise had they used 2003 as the end
point the calculated reduction would have been lower.
Would be interesting to see the calculations using discrete years.
