        A study from Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam found countries with low vitamin D levels were also the countries with highest mortality and COVID . A new study from researchers at Trinity College Dublin has hypothesized that vitamin D deficiency may be linked to higher mortality rates from COVID Published in the Irish Medical Journal, the report analyzed vitamin D levels of older people in countries heavily affected by the coronavirus and found that places with high death rates from COVID, including Italy and Spain, also had rates.

The impact of endemic HIV on the age pattern of mortality is illustrated in Figure 1, which plots the five-year female mortality rate schedules from – for the 40 countries of the world experiencing a generalized HIV epidemic [11].Cited by: A major component of this work is the development of new methods and tools for the estimation and analysis of mortality, particularly for countries where death registration data are deficient.

The findings of long-memory phenomena in mortality data motivate us to develop new mortality models by extending the Lee–Carter (LC) model to death counts and incorporating long-memory model.

The Lee–Carter model (Lee and Carter, ) provides the simplest way to extract a dominant temporal signal from mortality data.

Letting m t, x be the (logged) central mortality rate for age x at time t then conditional on the average age-specific mortality level a x over the fitting period we extract the first principal component κ t with Cited by: 5.

Data shown (from highest mortality to lowest) are Sweden in the s, Taiwan in the s, Sri Lanka in the s, Belarus in the s, and Japan in the s.

Reducing expo-sure to these eight risk factors would increase global life expectancy by almost 5 years. A total of million children died inmostly in low- and middle-income countries. We have discussed strategies for combining multiple data sets to forecast morbidity, disability, and mortality, and presented a three-part model based on mortality and cross-sectional risk factor or disability data from a developing country, and longitudinal risk factor and survival parameter estimates from a Mortality models for countries with deficient data book country.

This model Cited by: 1. The book discusses a ""model"" of the cause structure of mortality at various levels of mortality from all causes combined; the effect of various causes on the chances of death and longevity; and the contribution of economic factors to declines in mortality during the 20th century.

Leveraging on this, we propose a model that expresses log mortality rate changes as an age group dependent linear transformation of a mortality index. The mortality index is modeled as a Normal Inverse Gaussian. We demonstrate, with an exhaustive set of experiments and data sets spanning 11 countries over years, Cited by: Child Mortality.

Pandemics are large-scale outbreaks of infectious disease that can greatly increase morbidity and mortality over a wide geographic area and cause significant economic, social, and political disruption. Evidence suggests that the likelihood of pandemics has increased over the past century because of increased global travel and integration, urbanization, changes in land use, and greater Cited by: 4.

Measuring the number of years that an individual is expected to live with a specific economic status is important for the following reasons: (1) to monitor the achievement of national and international poverty and mortality reduction targets (eg, the Sustainable Development Goals); and (2) to draw attention to the proportion of a population spending considerable periods of life under a defined Cited by: 1.
