Table 2 Gender disparities that favoured women in ACSC rates in Finland

From: Trajectory modelling of ambulatory care sensitive conditions in Finland in 1996–2013: assessing the development of equity in primary health care through clustering of geographic areas – an observational retrospective study

  SRR [CI 95%] RD [CI 95%]
ACSC rates 1996 2013 1996 2013
Vaccine-preventable 2.17 [2.10–2.23] 1.81 [1.77–1.85] 577 [552–602] 492 [472–512]
Chronic 1.55 [1.53–1.57] 1.35 [1.32–1.38] 1227 [1184–1270] 331 [308–353]
Acute 1.22 [1.19–1.25] 1.05 [1.02–1.08] 148 [127–168] 32 [15–48]
  1. [Legend] The decrease in disparities in the annual trends of RDs and SRRs were statistically significant (p-value < 0.0001) in every subgroup
  2. SRR = standardised rate ratios
  3. RD = rate difference (RD)
