The Mortality Crisis in Transitional Economies

Front Cover
Oxford University Press, 2000 - Social Science - 456 pages
This book is the first comprehensive assessment of the mortality crisis which has affected most economies in transition but which has remained so far largely unexplained. It reconciles long-term and short-term explanations of the crisis and makes use of special micro data-sets never used before. By providing a rigourous multidisciplinary analysis of this upsurge in mortality rates, the book hopes to contribute to the launch of vigourous policies to tackle this societal problem.
