Mortality and Life Expectancy in Latin American Cities

Cover of Mortality and Life Expectancy in Latin American Cities report Life expectancy and causes of death vary greatly across urban areas in Latin America. Global and regional summaries of life expectancy and causes of death can hide significant variability across cities. Studies that characterize mortality across heterogeneous cities are needed to inform urban policies. Urban environments that differ across neighborhoods, cities, and countries can have a major impact on life expectancy and causes of death.

SALURBAL's latest data brief overviews the experiences of the SALURBAL project in harmonizing and describing mortality data across 366 cities in 10 countries.
