[Mortality in Reunion].

Abstract

Recent trends in mortality in Reunion are reviewed using data from a variety of official sources. The authors note that the decline in mortality is slowing and that mortality differentials by sex in favor of women are increasing. Reasons for these mortality differentials are identified, including improvements in health care for women and risks of mortality for men from traffic accidents, alcohol consumption, and smoking.
