dc.description.abstract This study in May 2002, part of the Jordan Department of Statistics national cross-sectional, multistage employment and unemployment survey, measured the prevalence of self-reported myocardial infarction (MI) and the association with modifiable risk factors among Jordanians aged 40+ years. Of 3083 participants, 183 (5.9percent) had ever been told by a doctor that they had had a MI. The prevalence varied by age and sex; 128 (69.9percent) of the cases were in men. Among males and females, self-reported hypertension and hypercholesterolaemia were significantly associated with MI and diabetes was a significant risk factor for women. There was a significant relationship between current smoking and MI but not with previous smoking. Exercise and body mass index were not statistically significant predictors of MI in both males and females.
