A statistical and analytical report, in two volumes, documenting health trends and changes in health status for countries in the Americas during 1993-1996. The first volume, which has five main parts, reports on health conditions from a regional perspective. Part one uses abundant statistical data to summarize health and living conditions, profile demographic characteristics and trends, and provide an overview of changes in mortality rates. Part two explores health conditions by population group, focusing on infants, children, adolescents, the elderly, workers, and indigenous peoples.
