Cerebrovascular disease is a leading cause of death and it is heavily involved in people's health and longevity.

The contribution rate of influence factors of cerebrovascular disease mortality rate is 36% for annual income, 22% for salt intake, 16% for prevalence of hypertension, 16% for heating degree-day and 10% for altitude, respectively. Based on these analyses, mitigation measures of cerebrovascular disease ity were suggested.
