This data visualization presents the distribution of deaths among groups of countries according to income. It highlights disparities in the distribution pattern of mortality among poor, average and rich countries in the Region of the Americas.
Proportional mortality was stratified by broad groups of causes of death --according to the Global Burden of Disease list-- and age groups. Countries were grouped according to income, using World Bank classification of economies. Data can be filtered by years and sex.
Over the years --from 1996 to 2007-- it is observed an improvement of proportional mortality in less that 1 years old and 1 to 4 years old age groups and increments of proportional mortality in age groups of older population but the distribution pattern continues being similar. Mortality in the chronic non communicable diseases group is the most frequent independently of the income.
Looking at year 2007, it is observed that:
