Age-standardized mortality rates by cause in Basra, Iraq: 1978 and 2007
Sadek, H.N.; Ajeel, N.A.H. ( 2012 )

Mortality data are essential to identify the public health importance of different diseases and allocate resources appropriately. This descriptive study was carried out to assess the pattern of mortality in Basra governorate in southern Iraq using the death records from the civil registry system for 2 years [1978 and 2007]. The overall age-standardized mortality rate was lower in 2007 than 1978 [7.95 versus 8.70 per 1000], so too were the age-specific mortality rates, with the exception of that for young adults, which was 22% higher. The leading cause of death in both years was cardiovascular diseases, while cancer was the third leading cause in 1978 and the second in 2007. Mortality rates were 45.5% lower for infectious diseases in 2007 compared with 1978, 39.5% lower for respiratory diseases, 50.0% lower for digestive system diseases, 66.7% higher for congenital malformations and 4-fold higher for endocrine and nutritional diseases

Causes of death among Syrian children using verbal autopsy
Abou Rashid, N.; Al Jirf, S.; Bashour, H. ( 1996 )

The causes of death in children under five years were studied using a structured verbal autopsy questionnaire. Possible determinants of death were also investigated. About 44% of deaths were among neonates [below 28 days of age]; the major causes of death in neonates were prematurity [33%] and birth-related factors [30%]. In infants [1-11 months of age], the leading cause of death was congenital malformations [24%]. Accidents were responsible for one-third of deaths in children aged 1-4 years. Factors that might have contributed to death were investigated. The public health importance of causes of death was evaluated and its implications were discussed
