Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This overview of the changing patterns of morbidity and mortality on the one hand and ethnicity and geographic variables on the other is an attempt to understand the changes which are taking place in the economic and social geography of Mauritius. Recently in the economic literature, there has been constant reference to the changes taking place in Mauritius. This article explores the changing patterns of morbidity and mortality based on official censuses, reports and studies. It further seeks to relate these to the geography of Mauritius.
