Quotation Luy, Marc, Wegner, Christian, Lutz, Wolfgang. 2011. Adult mortality in Europe. In: International Handbook of Adult Mortality, Hrsg. Richard G. Rogers and Eileen M. Crimmins, 49-81. Dordrecht, Heidelberg, London, New York: Springer Verlag.




Levels and trends of adult mortality in Europe over the last half-century were clustered geographically: Western Europe with the most favorable health conditions, Eastern Europe with the least favorable, and Central Europe falling in between. Each of these regions shows internal variation in mortality levels, with the least variability among the Western European and the highest differences among the Eastern European countries. The trisection characterizes not only overall adult mortality but also, with a few exceptions, age- and cause-of-death-specific mortality as well as tempo-adjusted life expectancy.
