Temporal Trends in Ischemic Heart Disease Mortality in 21 World Regions, 1980 to 2010: The Global Burden of Disease 2010 Study

High age-standardized IHD mortality in Eastern Europe, Central Asia, and South Asia point to the need to prevent and control established risk factors in those regions and to research the unique behavioral and environmental determinants of higher I HD mortality.

The collection and use of cause-of-death data by WHO is described for assessing the global and regional health situation, and for monitoring trends in health status, and several issues in the use of mortality data and the ICD for national health situation assessment are discussed.

Global estimates and projections of mortality by cause, 1970-2015

The authors report estimates and projections of deaths by cause for major world regions, based on data from country reports to the World Health Organization and regression models, and find that the population over 45 in developing countries is projected to more than double between 1985 and 2015, and proportionate deaths from diseases of the circulatory system are expected to rise.

Estimated causes of death in Thailand, 2005: implications for health policy

Routine incorporation of validated verbal autopsy methods could significantly improve cause-of-death data quality in Thailand and result in substantially different patterns of mortality than suggested by routine death registration.

The burden of mortality attributable to diabetes: realistic estimates for the year 2000.

These are the first global estimates of mortality attributable to diabetes, and diabetes is likely to be the fifth leading cause of death globally.
