Abstract [sv]

A decade ago, major public health differences between two neighboring, equal sized large Swedish cities, Norrköping and Linköping (»the Twin cities«) were revealed. These differences were considerable for cardiovascular mortality and life expectancy. An important finding was that cardiovascular mortality rates for men and women in the city of Norrköping were highest compared to other major Swedish cities. In this follow-up, a decade later, cardiovascular mortality rates are still highest for the Norrköping population in comparison to the largest Swedish cities. There are also still profound and major public health differences between these twin cities. The differences seem to persist over time. These differences could not be explained by differences in health care, but are rather reflecting different social history and socioeconomic and life style differences in these two cities.

Abstract [sv]

Hjärt–kärldödligheten minskar totalt sett i landet, men betydande skillnader i hjärt–kärldödlighet framkommer mellan de största svenska städerna.

Norrköping har den högsta hjärt–kärldödligheten både hos kvinnor och män, av de största svenska städerna, liksom för 10 år sedan.

Skillnaderna i hjärt–kärlmortalitet och förväntad medellivslängd mellan »tvillingstäderna« Norrköping och Linköping verkar inte minska i ett 10-årsperspektiv.

Folkhälsoskillnaderna mellan tvillingstäderna kan inte förklaras av skillnader i hälso- och sjukvård utan snarare av socioekonomiska och livsstilsrelaterade skillnader liksom städernas olika socialhistoria.
