Abstract

Special Collection 2: Determinants of Diverging Trends in Mortality is a set of papers stemming from the first seminar of the Committee on Emerging Health Threats (CEHT) of the International Union for the Scientific Study of Population (IUSSP), "Determinants of Diverging Trends of Mortality". The seminar was held in Rostock (Germany) from 19-21 June 2002. The seminar encouraged studies on adverse mortality trends and widening mortality differentials between and within countries.
Thirteen contributions were submitted to the journal Demographic Research and went through peer review. They were published, along with an introduction, on 16 April 2004 as the journal’s second “special collection” of material on a common topic. This short summary of the collection has been added to Volume 10 in order to include full details of the collection in the current running volume as well. The following pages list the contributions and give direct links where readers may download the material from the Demographic Research website. A full list of all papers is also available at: http://www.demographic-research.org/special/2/.
