Abstract

More than half of all cardiovascular diseases are caused by eight, mostly preventable risk factors. In view of the considerable differences in the prevalence and mortality of cardiovascular diseases between the 16 German federal states, the regional distribution of cardiovascular risk factors was analyzed stratified for men and women, using population-based data. Pooled data (n = 62,606) from the national, telephone health surveys "German Health Update" from 2009, 2010 and 2012 were used to estimate the prevalence of physical inactivity, risky alcohol consumption, smoking, low fruit and vegetable consumption, obesity and diagnosed hypertension, diabetes and dyslipidemia and the accumulated number of risk factors stratified for men and women in the federal states. Furthermore, we analyzed the influence of age and social status on prevalence differences. At the national level, 36.0% of men and 26.6% of women had three or more risk factors. Large differences between men and women were found for risky alcohol consumption (32.8% versus 21.7%), low fruit and vegetable consumption (20.6% versus 10.4%) and current smoking (32.6% versus 24.9%). The prevalence of all eight risk factors differed considerably between federal states. The highest prevalence of physical inactivity, obesity, hypertension and diabetes in both sexes as well as risky alcohol consumption in men were observed in the Eastern federal states (except for Berlin). Sachsen-Anhalt was the only federal state with the highest prevalence for two risk factors. Current smoking was most prevalent in the three federal city states Berlin, Hamburg and Bremen. Saarland had the highest prevalence of low fruit and vegetable consumption in both sexes. Regional differences remained after adjustment for age and social status. There is evidence for regional differences in cardiovascular risk factor levels in Germany that resemble variations in the prevalence and mortality of cardiovascular diseases between federal states with a more unfavorable situation in the East (except for Berlin). Overall, this study shows a considerable need for the prevention of mostly modifiable risk factors for cardiovascular diseases in men and women in Germany.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 4. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 05 February 2017.
All research outputs
#2,202,635
of 9,011,463 outputs
Outputs from Bundesgesundheitsblatt - Gesundheitsforschung - Gesundheitsschutz
#60
of 321 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#98,919
of 309,789 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Bundesgesundheitsblatt - Gesundheitsforschung - Gesundheitsschutz
#4
of 14 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 9,011,463 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 75th percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 321 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.8. This one has done well, scoring higher than 80% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 309,789 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 67% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 14 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 71% of its contemporaries.
