:: Visualización interactiva | Data  

Leading causes of deaths reflects those most frequent causes of death in a population. It is a useful analytical tool to identify health interventions to reduce mortality and improve population health.

This interactive data visualization presents leading causes of death for the Region of the Americas using the 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, age groups, and countries which allows displaying leading causes of deaths for the whole region and specific population groups. 

Data source of this interactive visualization is the PAHO Regional Mortality System, Pan American Health Organization (PAHO).
