Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The epidemiological transition in the USSR is examined, with a focus on differences among the constituent republics. "Means of comparative analysis of mortality structure by causes of death are proposed and by these means the lag of [the] Soviet Union behind the U.S. and Sweden as well as some Soviet republics behind others is described. It is shown that the main reason [for] this lag is the lower age of death from the causes characteristic of [the] new type of pathology (circulatory diseases, cancer) though in the more backward regions the causes of death which are characteristic of the old type of pathology keep their importance too."
