    Notes from “Determinants of Mortality” (Cutler et. al.) Mortality rates have fallen dramatically over time Starting in developed countries in 18th century Continuing to fall today In just past century life expectancy has increased by over 30 years At the same time mortality rates remain much higher in poor countries. The infant mortality risk associated with multiple births was times higher relative to singleton births (p. ). Socioeconomic variables did not have a distinct impact on infant mortality.

    About this Item: Taylor & Francis Ltd, United Kingdom, Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Determinants of the Death Penalty seeks to explain the phenomenon of capital punishment - without recourse to value judgements - by identifying those characteristics common to countries that use the death penalty and those that mark countries which do not. Misreporting age at death can distort the age pattern of mortality. Of particular concern is the rounding of reported ages at death so that some deaths which actually occur in late infancy are reported as deaths at one year of age. This type of misreporting would tend to underestimate infant mortality rates and overestimate child mortality rates.
