Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


There has been a recent resurgence in mortality studies, and the annual, or biannual meetings of the EAPS Health, Morbidity and Mortality Working Group have become an important venue for European and other researchers to meet, share and discuss their findings. This introductory chapter presents a brief overview of some of the main themes in current mortality research, and discusses such questions as the meaning of published mortality measures and the relationship between period and cohort life tables. In the second part, we present a summary discussion of the 12 papers in the current volume.
