Figure 1

Adjusted odds ratios (OR) of the use of revascularization procedures in all 30,366 men and 16,041 women aged 45 to 84 years that were hospitalized for their first acute myocardial infarction in Swedish acute care facilities from 1993 to 1996 and who survived the first 28 days after admission, by hospital at admission and cumulative income in 1975 and 1990. Adjustments were made for age, sex and previous hospitalizations. Income was obtained by summing the values of the quartile categories of income in 1975 and in 1990. This variable has the minimum value of two if the patient belonged to the low income group (1) in both 1975 and 1990 (i.e., value = 1 + 1), and the maximum value of eight if the patient belonged to the high income group (i.e., value = 4 + 4). The lower borders of the 95% confidence intervals are marked.
