Mortality in Central Asia (ICPSR 34378)

Principal Investigator(s):

Summary:

The goal of this research was to improve knowledge of mortality in former Soviet Central Asia. The aim of the project was to gather and analyze unpublished aggregate- and individual-level data from local statistical offices in Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, and Turkmenistan. In addition, these sources were complemented by the use of data from Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS) and Living Standards Measurement Study (LSMS) household surveys. The implementation of various demographic and statistical methods permitted: (a) the assessment of data quality and changes for each of the five republics since 1958; (b) the estimation of ethnic-specific and cause-specific mortality rates for each of the five republics since 1958; and (c) the analysis of behavioral, biomedical, economic, social, and cultural factors associated with recent mortality levels, trends, and differentials in Central Asia.
