Using WHO Mortality Data For International Comparison

McKenzie, Kirsten, Stahl, Caroline, Walker, Sue M., Tong, Shilu, & Oldenburg, Brian F. (2002) Using WHO Mortality Data For International Comparison. In Meeting of the Heads of WHO Collaborating Centres for the Classification of Diseases, 14th-19th October, Brisbane, Queensland. (Unpublished)

Abstract

The World Health Organization provides detailed mortality data files through the WHO Mortality Database (WHO MDB). While valuable information is available from the WHO MDB, there are some inherent difficulties in the utilisation of such data for the user. Through describing the procedures for downloading and formatting the data, and the utilisation of the available data, the author aims to promote the MDB for wider application by mortality researchers.

Impact and interest:

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
