CAUSES: Causes of Asian American Mortality Understood by Socioeconomic Status. Using local, state, and national death/mortality datasets, investigators from Stanford University are examining racial/ethnic, nativity, and geographic differences in Asian American subgroup mortality compared to other racial/ethnic groups. Another war-torn country on our list, Yemen has a life expectancy of Although the Civil War is a large contributing factor to the low death rate in Yemen, a high mortality rate also plays a role. Life Expectancies in Asian Countries.
We examine in this synthesis chapter the mortality trends observed across China, India and Indonesia since the s, portraying an almost linear and uninterrupted progression in longevity in the three countries. Yet, the pace of mortality reduction in the three Asian countries is now slower than currently observed in less developed countries. Current data on infant mortality rate for Asian Nations was obtained from the World Bank health indicators database.6 Infant Mortality Rate (IMR) is defined as the number of infant deaths per live births.7 The data obtained for IMR and health spending was then divided into sub regional groups like South Asia, South.
Highest Maternal Mortality Rates. Some of the highest mortality rates in the world are all countries on the African continent. In fact, approximately 62% of all maternal deaths worldwide occur there. Sierra Leone. The country that leads the list is Sierra Leone, an African nation, with a maternal mortality rate of 1, deaths per , births. Infant Mortality and Asian Asian women generally have lower infant mortality rates than the overall population, however recent statistics for Asian American subgroups are limited for this topic. Asian American infants are 40 percent more likely to die from maternal complications as compared to non-Hispanic white mothers.

Most of this book is a translation from the Japanese of a larger study entitled Population dynamics in African countries and edited by A. Ohtomo and H. Sagaza for the Institute of Developing Economies, Tokyo, inalthough chapter 7 on prospects of mortality trends in Asia is new.
The book opens with a rather general discussion of Asian population trends with statistics culled from the Cited by: 2. Get this from a library. Recent trends of mortality in Asian countries. [Kōzō Ueda]. Many countries still lack well functioning civil registration and vital statistics (CRVS) systems, and where such systems do exist, reporting errors – whether incompleteness (unregistered deaths, also known as “missing”) or misclassification of cause of death – continue to pose a major challenge to data accuracy.

This chapter starts with a brief introduction to China’s mortality changes between and It then describes China’s major sources of mortality data, in particular issues regarding the census data. Following that, the chapter examines China’s recent mortality trends and by: 5.
These graphics of U.S. mortality trends since highlight the differences in age-adjusted death rates and life expectancy at birth by race and sex; childhood mortality rates by age group; and trends in age-adjusted death rates for five selected major causes of death.
A recent, independent evaluation found that Lady Health Workers have a positive impact on uptake of family planning and antenatal care.

Maternal mortality declined by 38 per cent between and Maternal mortality refers to deaths due to complications from pregnancy or childbirth. From tothe global maternal mortality ratio declined by 38 per cent – from deaths to deaths perlive births, according to UN inter-agency estimates.
This translates into an average annual rate of reduction of 4 World Mortality Data Booklet Average life expectancy at birth for the world was years in Life expectancy at birth 80 to 84 75 to 79 70 to 74 65 to 69 60 to 64 55 to The WHO Mortality Database is a compilation of mortality data by age, sex and cause of death, as reported annually by Member States from their civil registration systems.

New Caledonia had the highest country-specific mortality rate in the Asia-Pacific region of 45 deaths per(Baade et al., ). Increases in age-adjusted mortality rates perperson-years adjusted to the world standard ranged from 50% in Thailand to % in Korea between and (Sim & Cheng, ).
Between andPakistan had the highest infant mortality rate throughout South Asia, with an estimated 61 infant deaths for every one thousand live births.

Table 1 also shows that men account for slightly more of the Asian mortality advantage than women do, with differences in the mortality regime between Asian and white men accounting for years (55%) of the year racial gap in life expectancy.
Looking across the main group categories, we see the sources of the sex difference. Introduction. Trends in international asthma mortality rates provide a useful barometer of the burden of asthma and the impact of changes in asthma management.1, 2 These trends helped to identify so-called epidemics of asthma mortality in some but not all countries in the s 3 and in the s and s.
4 These high asthma mortality rates were shown to be due to the overuse of the. Chart and table of the U.S. death rate from to United Nations projections are also included through the year The death rate, while only a rough indicator of the mortality situation in a country, accurately indicates the current mortality impact on population growth.
This indicator is significantly affected by age distribution, and most countries will eventually show a rise in the overall death rate, in spite of continued decline in mortality at all.
This article provides an overview of trends in early childhood mortality ( years) and adult mortality ( years) in the low- and middle-income countries with populations of more than one.

Background: Asian Americans (AA) are the fastest growing U.S. population, and when properly distinguished by their ethnic origins, exhibit substantial heterogeneity in socioeconomic status, health behaviors, and health outcomes.
Cancer is the second leading cause of death in the United States, yet trends and current patterns in the mortality burden of cancer among AA ethnic groups have not.country helps to reduce mortality. In  TK Chakrabarty investigated that how do Asian countries are contributing in reducing the infant mortality rate.
TK Chakrabarty further discussed in results that there is a slow trend of IMR in entire region of South Asian countries, the .Definition: This entry gives the number of deaths of infants under one year old in a given year per 1, live births in the same year.
This rate is often used as an indicator of the level of health in a country. Description: The map displayed here shows how Infant mortality rate varies by country. The shade of the country corresponds to the magnitude of the indicator.
