Leading causes of death is an analytical tool to identify health interventions to reduce mortality and improve population health.
This interactive data visualization shows leading causes of death for the population of 60 years old and over in the Region of the Americas. It is based on tabular list published by Becker R et al. at the Bulletin of the World Health Organization, 2006.
Data is presented using a bar chart with a rank of causes of deaths and filters by year, sex, age groups, and countries which allows displaying leading causes of deaths for the whole region and specific population groups. In the case of years, a slider allows us to display leading causes of deaths by an specific year.
The source of this interactive visualization is the PAHO Regional Mortality System, Pan American Health Organization.
