Analyses of 4.9 million individual deaths
We examine and contrast trends in overall mortality, vascular mortality, smoking-attributable mortality and homicide mortality in Mexico and among US Mexican Hispanics from 1995 to 2015. Our goal was to elucidate the convergence and divergence in overall and cause-specific mortality, as well as in the important factors for premature adult mortality. Specifically, we apply indirect methods indexed on absolute lung cancer mortality to quantify smoking risks, and examine trends in specific causes of death made particularly more common by untreated diabetes.
