There is a widespread clinical impression that heart disease is uncommon in certain segments of the Alaska Native population, and the results of limited mortality analysis have been consistent with this impression. It was therefore decided to examine death records of Natives more extensively in an attempt to verify further this impression. For purposes of this study, all deaths for Alaskan Aleuts, Eskimos, and Indians age 40 and over, certified as due to diseases of the heart, were reviewed for the period 1955-65.
