MORTALITY OF WORKING AGE POPULATION IN RUSSIA AND INDUSRIAL COUNTRIES IN EUROPE: TRENDS OF THE LAST TWO DECADES

Cover Page

Abstract


Aim: The purpose of the study was to carry out comparative analysis of the status and trends in mortality of male and female population of working age (15–59 (54) years) in Russia and the EU-27. Materials and methods: Based on official Russian (Rosstat) data, on the global database of the World Health Organization’s cause of death (The WHO Mortality Database, WHOMD) and databases The Human Mortality Database (HMD) of the sex-age composition of the population and the number of deaths from certain causes of death by age and sex standardized (direct method) mortality rates of working age population from selected causes of death for 1990 and 2011 in Russia and the average for the EU-27 were calculated. Results: Analysis of trends in mortality of male and female population of working age in Russia over the past two decades shows that, despite the positive changes in during last six years, in 2011, age-standardized mortality rates remained above the 1990 level for most causes of death. During the same period in the EU-27 mortality in men (15–59 years) and women (15–54 years) increased from almost all causes of death, which led to an even greater gap between Russia and developed countries on this indicator: standardized mortality rate of the male population of Russia in 1990 was higher than in the EU-27 by 2.1 times, and by 2011 the gap had increased to 3.5 times. The women in the 1990 had 1.5 times higher standardized mortality rates, and by 2011 the gap had increased to 2.7 times. Conclusion: Despite a steady decline in the mortality rates of working age population after 2005, its level in 2012 was still higher than the one of 1990 for both men and women, which led to a further increase in the gap between the age-standardized coefficients of mortality rate of working age population in Russia and the countries of European Community-27 (15–59 (54)). Faster reduction of mortality rate in the working age population will preserve Russian population and its labor potential.
