Changing Mortality Patterns and Causes of Death

(p.160) 10 Changing Mortality Patterns and Causes of Death
Transition and Challenge

Zhongwei Zhao (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter investigates the changes in age patterns of death and sex differentials in mortality. It also examines changes in causes of death and their impacts on China's mortality patterns. It shows that because mortality reduction of the same magnitude has not taken place simultaneously in all age groups or populations of different sex, considerable changes have been observed in both age patterns of death and sex differentials in mortality. This conforms to a general trend recorded in many countries.

Keywords:   mortality, sex differentials, causes of death, regional variation
