Clinical epidemiological study of cardiovascular diseases carried out at Tuzla town area and its close rural surroundings from 1965 to 1985, was part of the acknowledged Yugoslav study of cardiovascular diseases. 6460 men, 32-65 years of age, participated in the study. 3151 man belonged to urban and 3309 to rural population. Many factors were followed and their share in general and special morbidity and mortality. Besides known risk factors, environmental factors then personal and group characteristics of the participants, the study also considered psychosocial and sociocultural factors (place of birth, parent's religion, level of education, occupation), pathological habits (smoking and alcoholism). The results confirmed undisputed importance of these factors on overall and especially on cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. These results are confirmed by other studies too, like The Framingham study, etc.
