Social Problems


The article has estimated the demographic and socioeconomic losses due to premature mortality from the primary classes of causes of death in the population of Russia and Vologda oblast. The eliminated reserves of mortality and years of potential life lost have been calculated to analyze the demographic damage. The per capita GDP and GRP data is involved in assessing the economic damage due to premature mortality in the population. It has been established that the most demographic and socioeconomic damage is endured due to the circulatory system diseases, external causes of death, and neoplasms. The patterns of losses from premature mortality displayed significant gender- and age-specific distinctions.
