United Nations (1982). Levels and Trends of Mortality since 1950 - A joint study by the United Nations and the World Health Organization (United Nations publication, Sales No. E.81.XIII.3).
This reports provides one of the first comprehensive review of international mortality levels and trends from around 1950 to the mid-1970s.
Special emphasis was given, in particular, to the mortality conditions in Africa, Asia and Latin America. The following socio-demographic differentials were also examined based on data availability: age and sex differentials in mortality; mortality in the particularly vulnerable periods of infancy and early childhood; differential mortality by urban/rural residence and socioeconomic characteristics such as education, income, occupation and social class; and morbidity and causes of death.
