Abstract

"The article describes [the] demographic situation from the point of view of mortality and its differences by sex in Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia, Finland and Sweden. These countries were chosen...as the representatives of two mortality models, which occur in contemporary Europe: ¿western' and ¿eastern' models. Countries of [Eastern] Europe reach higher values of mortality probabilities in all age groups with corresponding attained lower medium life span at birth." The author also considers life expectancy at older ages, male excess mortality, and causes of death. (EXCERPT)
