Call for aggregate place of death data

05 july, 2022≈ 2 min read

Today we launched a global call for aggregate data on places of death. We contacted vital registries of 47 countries varied in UN regions and the Quality of Death Index. Our aim is to examine recent trends (2012-2021) in the distribution of place of death, by world region, age, gender and cause of death. We also aim to describe the level and type of missing data, as well as the comprehensiveness and correspondence of the classifications used in the different countries. This will inform the development of the first international classification of dying places, which is a central goal of the EOLinPLACE Project.
