AMI, Acute Myocardial Infarction. N.A., not assessed, no significant association between neighbourhood SES and AMI in age-groups 95 years.

PAR: Proportion of AMI incidence attributable to socioeconomic inequalities. Socioeconomic quintile Q1 is the reference category.

Total number of events attributable to total socioeconomic inequalities (= PAR * number of events per age-gender group).

‡ PP: Preventable proportion of AMI incidence attributable to socioeconomic inequalities.

Previous socioeconomic quintile is the reference category.

Number of events attributable to socioeconomic inequalities (= PP * number of events per age-gender group).
