Publication name: Understanding the Health of Scotland's Population in an International Context Part 2
Date: 30 August 2006
Description: "The purpose of this report is to improve understanding of the health of Scotland in
an international context. In Part II the results of an analysis of mortality rates in Scotland in comparison with those in other European Countries are presented. Data directly available from WHO was used to examine mortality trends from 1950 to 2000 in 20 European countries. We started by considering all cause mortality in four different age groups (infancy, childhood, working and adult age). We then moved on to focus on working ages for specific causes of death. Scottish trends were studied and compared with those for other countries and against the mean, minimum and maximum Western European rates."
