Death rates vary by sex and age. In 2017, death rates for Oregon men were higher than for women among each of the five leading causes of death (Figure 2). By age group, the leading causes of death are: certain conditions originating in the perinatal period among infants; unintentional injuries among people aged 1–44 years; cancer for people aged 45–84 years; and heart disease for people ≥85 years of age.

Maternal Stroke
TLDR
An overview of the epidemiology of maternal stroke is provided, mechanisms that may explain increasing rates of stroke among pregnant women are explored, and key knowledge gaps for future investigation in this area are identified.
Regional variations in mortality and causes of death in Israel, 2009–2013
TLDR
The SMR, adjusted for age and ethnicity, is a good method for identifying districts that differ significantly from the national average, but factors associated with ethnicity may affect mortality more than regional factors.
Mortality Risks in New-Onset Childhood Epilepsy
TLDR
Mortality is significantly higher compared with the general population in children with complicated epilepsy but not uncomplicated epilepsy, and sudden and seizure-related death rates were similar to or higher than rates for other common causes of death in young people.
Canadian trends in mortality from mental disorders, 1965–1983
TLDR
Overall there has been an increase in the death rate for each of these causes of mortality, both for males and females, and that in the case of presenile and senile dementia the increase has been particularly rapid.
Predictors of Mortality Over 8 Years in Type 2 Diabetic Patients
TLDR
Risk of death can be predicted in people with type 2 diabetes using simple demographic, socioeconomic, and biological risk factors with fair reliability and may, with further validation, be useful for patient management.
Body mass index and infectious disease mortality in midlife in a cohort of 2.3 million adolescents
TLDR
Adolescent overweight and obesity were strongly associated with ID mortality, especially of bacterial origin and among women, with significantly increased risk seen above adolescent BMI values of 23.6 and 24.0 kg m−2, respectively.
Erroneous Reporting of Deaths Attributed to Pneumonia and Influenza at 2 New York City Teaching Hospitals, 2013-2014

Cohort Morbidity Hypothesis: Health Inequalities of Older Māori and non-Māori in New Zealand.
This paper describes the mortality trends from 1948 to 2008 between Māori and non-Māori populations. Using the cohort morbidity hypothesis, we propose that health disparities between the populations
Death and illness as depicted in the media
TLDR
If media reporting of illness and death represents national statistics is assessed, it is found that the media has both a positive impact on the population, in providing opportunistic health information, and a negative impact, causing an overestimation of severity and incidence of certain diseases.
