This handbook presents a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of unprecedented substantive, theoretical, methodological, and statistical developments and insights, and an in-depth examination of trends and patterns, in adult mortality around the world. With over two dozen chapters and more than fifty authors, this volume draws from top international mortality experts to provide one of the best overviews of life expectancy extant.
The handbook documents remarkable gains in life expectancy, which stand out as one of the most important accomplishments of the twentieth century.
Individuals in more developed countries can expect to live longer now than ever before, especially the Japanese, who enjoy record-setting life expectancies. The book also explores unfortunate declines in life expectancy in selected countries brought on by such factors as the following: infectious diseases; accidents, suicides, and homicides; and political and economic conflict and turmoil. This book synthesizes the wealth of mortality information available, clearly articulates the central findings to-date, identifies the most appropriate datasets and methods currently available, illuminates the central research questions, and develops an agenda to address these research questions.
The authors carefully examine central factors related to mortality, including health behaviors, socioeconomic status, social relations, biomarkers, and genetic factors. The book will prove especially relevant to researchers, students, and policy makers within social and health sciences who want to better understand international trends and patterns in adult mortality.
Now, Richard Rogers and Eileen Crimmins have engaged many of the leading contributors to that storehouse of information to place in a single volume the present state of knowledge about human adult mortality, its variations over time and place and its many causes, as well as influential policy formulations.
This wide-ranging and exhaustive collection of studies of adult mortality gives a fascinating account.
A complete analysis of the characteristics of adult morality and its extension to the morbid process preceding death, but above all the involvement of scholars from various disciplines, make this book an important reference point not only for the academic world — researchers, teachers and students — but also for the political world and those working in the health services. Its contents are particularly valuable for implementing health and social policies that aim to reduce the consequences of inequality and thus to provide better health for all".

It comes close to being a recipe for a long and healthy life. The book lays out the factors that explain the gains in life expectancy and health expectancy witnessed across the world. They are genetic, behavioral, social, environmental and institutional.
A collection of over reference resources. Contains content from more than books, dictionaries, encyclopedias, and handbooks, the entire Little Green Book, and Little Blue Book series. SAGE Research Methods is a research methods tool created to help researchers, faculty and students with their research projects.
Researchers can explore methods concepts to help them design research projects, understand particular methods or identify a new method, conduct their research, and write up their findings. Since SAGE Research Methods focuses on methodology rather than disciplines, it can be used across the social sciences, health sciences, and more. SAGE Research Methods contains content from more than books, dictionaries, encyclopedias, and handbooks, the entire Little Green Book, and Little Blue Book series, two Major Works collating a selection of journal articles, and newly commissioned videos.
