Explanations for Differentials and Trends in Morbitidy and Mortality

This workshop was organized by the EAPS Working Group on Differentials in Health, Morbidity and Mortality in Europe in collaboration with the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research in Rostock. The purpose of the workshop was to discuss frameworks and methods that can be used in research aiming to explain differentials in morbidity and mortality between time periods, countries, regions, genders, socioeconomic and other subgroups of the population. Two types of papers were discussed in the workshop: theoretical and methodological papers dealing with general problems in the explanation of morbidity and mortality differentials, and empirical papers, the explicit purpose of which is to explain observed trends or differentials in morbidity and mortality.
