Description:Preventing premature death is one of the most important goals of health care and of public health. Examining the leading causes of death and considering the cost and effectiveness of available prevention methods are, together, a first step toward appropriately allocating scarce health care and public health resources. The most important causes of premature death are different at different ages and for men and women. This report presents the leading causes of death for men and women in seven age groups « 1 year, 1-14 years, 15-24 years, 24-44 years, 45-64 years, 65-84 years, 85 years and over) during the five-year period, 1991-1995. For selected causes, trends are examined for the ten-year period, 1986-1995, and rates are presented by local health department districts.
