Answer

Stroke subtypes also vary greatly in different parts of the world and between different races. For example, the proportion of hemorrhagic strokes may be higher in certain populations, such as the Chinese population, in which it has been reported to be up to 39.4%, and the Japanese, in which it is reportedly up to 38.7%.
