EAPS Seminar on Trends in Differentials in Morbidity and Mortality:
Analysis and Explanation: call for papers
Pontignano, Italy: April 20-23, 2001

The EAPS Working Group on Differentials in Health, Morbidity and Mortality in Europe will organize its fifth seminar in Pontignano, Italy. The seminar is arranged in collaboration with Universita degli Studi di Siena, Facolta di Scienze Politiche and Dipartimento di Studi Aziendali e Sociali (Prof.ssa Cinzia Buccianti).

The purpose of the seminar is to discuss problems dealing with the analysis and explanation of trends in differentials in health, morbidity and mortality.

The earlier seminars of the Working Group have mainly dealt with problems in the measurement and explanation of differentials in morbidity and mortality during one time period. This time the focus is on changes in differentials. Particularly from the public health point of view it is important to know to what extent differentials between population groups are diminishing or increasing and what the causes for changes are.

The seminar will start on Friday April 20th and last until Monday April 23, 2001. The participants are expected to pay their travel expenses but the hotel and meals will be covered by the Italian hosts.The number of participants is restricted.

The detailed programme of the seminar will be planned on the basis of the abstracts received. Preliminary topics for some the sessions are the following:

  • Measurement of changes in morbidity and mortality differentials
  • Problems in the explanation of changes in mortality differentials
  • Causes for changes in sex differentials in life expectancy
  • Widening or narrowing socio-economic differentials in health and mortality?
  • Causes for the widening the East-West gap in mortality in Europe
  • Trends in regional differentials in morbidity and mortality
  • National and comparative studies on trends in marital status differences in morbidity and mortality.
  • Trends in mortality differentials among the elderly

Colleagues interested in participating in the seminar are invited to submit either a detailed abstract or a completed paper to the chairman of the Working Group Professor Tapani Valkonen by November 30. Contributions by both established experts and by younger demographers are welcome. The selection of the papers will be based on their relevance to the topic of the seminar and on their scientific quality.

Tapani Valkonen,
Chairman of the EAPS Working Group on Differential in Health. Morbidity and Mortality in Europe.
