Background There are well‐documented geographical differences in cardiovascular disease (CVD) mortality for non‐Hispanic whites. However, it remains unknown whether similar geographical variation in CVD mortality exists for Asian American subgroups. This study aims to examine geographical differences in CVD mortality among Asian American subgroups living in the United States and whether they are consistent with geographical differences observed among non‐Hispanic whites. Methods and Results Using US death records from 2003 to 2011 (n=3 897 040 CVD deaths), age‐adjusted CVD mortality rates per 100 000 population and age‐adjusted mortality rate ratios were calcula...
