Abstract: Background: Coronary heart disease mortality has been internationally high in eastern Finland. The excessive mortality risk in Eastern compared with western Finns is explained by differences in cardiometabolic risk profile. Current risk profile differences and association with migration have not been reported. We examined the association of place of residence (east west) and specifically migration with cardiometabolic risk markers and carotid intima media thickness (IMT). Methods: The study population included 2204 participants with data available from childhood/youth in 1980 and follow-up examination in 2007. Results: Participants residing in eastern Finland in adulthood had 0.022 +/- 0.004mm higher IMT than Western participants. Those who migrated east-to-west had lower IMT than those staying in the east (0.027 +/- 0.006mm, p
