  • World Health Organ
  • The World Health Organization defines perinatal mortality as the "number of stillbirths and deaths in the first week of life per 1,000 total births, the perinatal period commences at 22 completed weeks (154 days) of gestation and ends seven completed days after birth", but other definitions have been used. (wikipedia.org)
  • early
  • Variations in the precise definition of the perinatal mortality exist specifically concerning the issue of inclusion or exclusion of early fetal and late neonatal fatalities. (wikipedia.org)
  • In some definitions of the PNM early fetal mortality (week 20-27 gestation) is not included, and the PNM may only include late fetal death and neonatal death. (wikipedia.org)
  • Early neonatal mortality refers to a death of a live-born baby within the first seven days of life, while late neonatal mortality covers the time after 7 days until before 28 days. (wikipedia.org)
  • Some definitions of the PNM include only the early neonatal mortality. (wikipedia.org)
  • 2000
  • Expressed in ratios, melanoma mortality increased from 3.4 per 100 thousand residents in 2000 to 4.7 per 100 thousand in 2012. (cbs.nl)
  • deaths
  • The World Health Organization defines perinatal mortality as the "number of stillbirths and deaths in the first week of life per 1,000 total births, the perinatal period commences at 22 completed weeks (154 days) of gestation and ends seven completed days after birth", but other definitions have been used.

  • Preterm birth is the most common cause of perinatal mortality, causing almost 30 percent of neonatal deaths. (wikipedia.org)
  • Mortality rate is the term used in reference to the ratio of the total number of deaths to the total population. (everything2.com)
  • rates
  • The more prosperous countries, such as Canada , and the United States , have lower mortality rates because of better health care (though that can be argued quite nicely). (everything2.com)
  • Thank you to Mr. Armstrong , the dear old man who taught me much about mortality rates , third world countries , and just what it means to be a good little human . (everything2.com)
  • The first known actuarial table concerning mortality rates was constructed by Sir Edmund Halley in 1694 . (everything2.com)
  • Prior research shows that levels of air pollution fluctuate with the rise and fall of economic conditions, and this study is the first to investigate if these changes are associated with fluctuations in mortality rates. (nih.gov)
  • Investigators used a panel dataset to analyze the relationship between air pollutant levels (carbon monoxide, PM10, and ozone), county-level mortality rates (overall, age-, and cause-specific), and county-level unemployment rates between 1982 and 2009. (nih.gov)
  • They found a significant positive correlation between pollution concentrations and mortality rates after controlling for demographic variables and state-by-year fixed effects. (nih.gov)
  • Consistent with previous research, they also found a negative correlation between county unemployment and mortality rates after controlling for the appropriate variables. (nih.gov)
  • They - 1) combined county-level data on overall, cause-specific, and age-specific mortality with county-level measures of ambient concentrations for three types of air pollutants (carbon monoxide, PM10, and ozone) and unemployment rates and 2) analyzed the relationship between macroeconomic conditions, air pollution, and mortality rates using regression techniques and panel data methods to control for demographic and pollution variables as well as state-by-year fixed effects.

  • Early neonatal mortality refers to a death of a live-born baby within the first seven days of life, while late neonatal mortality covers the time after 7 days until before 28 days. (wikipedia.org)
