Table 3 Correlations between total revascularization (PCI plus CABG) rates (per 100,000 age 20 and older) with state-level socio-economic status, cardiovascular surgery and cardiology work forces data, utilization of diagnostic catheterization, and measures of the burden of coronary heart diseases.
