Adult Mortality Determinants in Low and Middle-Income Countries: A workshop examining adult mortality in low and middle income countries and comparisons with high income countries

Workshop | February 22 |  Barrows Hall

 Center on the Economics and Demography of Aging

This workshop is designed to share leading research methods and findings on comparative patterns of adult mortality, mortality determinants, and risk factors in low and middle-income countries (LMICs), following-up on workshops held on this topic at USC and Berkeley in 2016, 2017, and 2018.

The goal is to build a robust evidence base for understanding the drivers of cross-national mortality and health expectancy patterns, especially in populations with unusually high or low adult mortality. The newly expanded availability of longitudinal HRS-type surveys in LMICs make this an opportune time to gather a network of researchers using such data to study mortality patterns and determinants, in order to share innovative methods, new results, and ideas for the most promising research agenda going forward.
