Health statistics from the Americas 1998: health in early childhood; recorded mortality
This edition is the 4th in a series begun in 1991 to complement the quadrennial publication Health in the Americas. Part I of this edition is devoted to a special topic--health during childhood. Part I deals with population dynamics in children under 5 years old, presents estimated death rates for broad groups of causes for children under 1 year and children 1-4 years of age, and examines selected health topics of particular importance during childhood. Part II presents data on registered mortality in specific age groups. In addition to providing a summarized presentation of causes of death in children under 5 years of age,it also includes mortality data for several age groups, immediately following early childhood. These data have not been published previously in this age detail, and they should be invaluable in the study of adolescent health. In Part III, this volume presents summarized mortality data by age group and sex for all country-years received after the previous edition (1995). With this book PAHO once more brings to analysts, researchers, policymakers, and other interested parties, the full richness of statistical information about health available in the Region of the Americas
