The study is based on seven cycles of the National Population Health Survey, including new data for 2006/2007. The study used data from a sample of 4,948 men and women aged 40 or older who did not report having heart disease in 1994/1995. It followed them through to 2006/2007 to determine if depression was associated with increased risk of heart disease diagnosis or death.
