Abstract

NIDI recently compiled a mortality atlas of 272 regions in the European Union and the EFTA countries. For each region the atlas describes mortality by age, sex and cause of death.National borders proved to be important predictors of mortality. We found marked differences in cause specific mortality between the historically closely linked Flanders and the Netherlands.Flanders suffered most from suicide and road traffic accidents among men, the Netherlands most from smoking related mortality among women.
