Getting mortality rates


Walsingham

Recommended Posts

I've been wondering what the mortality rates for South Africa, pre and post apartheid are. But I'm drawing blanks for all research vehicles I can think of. Has anyone got any good sources to try?

I know CIA is not exactly famous for their assessment of other countries, but according to them:

the post apartheid death rate is 22 deaths/1,000 population (2006 est.) .

 

The pre apartheid might be a bit trickier. I've got a new developer starting here in a few weeks time from South Africa, maybe he can give a hint where to search. Sort of depends on how urgent you need to info.

South Africa has a pretty developed life insurance industry. You could try getting the mortality tables (different from morbidity which is disablement, not death) somewhere.

 

Maybe google some combos with actuary, life insurance, mortality tables and of course the country's stat dept may have it. There should be tables based on different years too.

 

Just don't forget that it's hard to isolate mortality influences (say just because of Arpartheid) across time as there are multiple factors that would affect mortality - improving health services, etc.

 

There may be papers that discuss mortality trends in South Africa, which may be closer to what you need.

I guess I could cf the crime and disease figures versus the HR abuse and disease figures or something. Maybe the UN...

I've got my old Global Studies textbook on CD if you want me to look it up.

One billion b-balls dribbling simultaneously throughout the galaxy. One trillion b-balls being slam dunked through a hoop throughout the galaxy. I can feel every single b-ball that has ever existed at my fingertips. I can feel their collective knowledge channeling through my viens. Every jumpshot, every rebound and three-pointer, every layup, dunk, and free throw. I am there.

Thank you kindly, sir. I'd appreciate that.
