Sample text

Perinatal deaths (pp. 31–32) The rate shows the number of deaths of fetuses weighing 1000 g or more and of newborn babies aged 0–6 full days per 1000 births (live and Life and death stillborn). Where weight-specific data were not available, calculations were based on the data provided by countries, whatever the national criteria. For that reason and owing to possible incomplete registration of perinatal deaths in the countries where infant mortality is incomplete, intercountry comparisons should be treated with caution.

27–29) Mortality gradually increases from the western to the eastern part of the Region. The level of premature mortality (deaths in people aged below 65 years) varies particularly dramatically in relative terms. East–west differences in mortality of the elderly population (those aged 65 years and over) are relatively less pronounced. Excess male mortality is presented as a percentage of the excess of male over female death rates on the left side of the bar charts. Particularly high premature male mortality in some eastern countries makes the largest contribution proportionally to the east–west gap in total mortality.

Female mortality from lung cancer is steadily increasing in Eur-A countries; in Eur-B+C as a whole, there is no progress in reducing deaths from colorectal cancer among older people, breast cancer in older women and cancer of the cervix uteri in younger women. Deaths from external causes of injury and poisoning (pp. 54–58) External causes of death from injury and poisoning include accidents, homicide, suicide and other causes that are not diseases. The remarkable increase in mortality from these causes in Eur-B+C in the first half of the 1990s is attributable to the combined effect of the end of the anti-alcohol campaigns that started in the USSR in 1985 and the socioeconomic crises of the 1990s.
