Ausführliche Beschreibung

Previous studies reported wide variability in the extent of excess deaths, changes in life expectancy (LE), and years of life lost (YLL) in 2020 when compared to expected mortality based on historical trends. For example, our group has previously reported a reduction of 2.32 years in LE in Russia, a gain of 0.41 years in New Zealand, whereas there was no evidence of change in Denmark in 2020. Previous research also highlighted within-country inequalities in premature mortality by sex, race/ethnicity, socioeconomic status, and geographic regions. Identifying and quantifying the key drivers of inequalities within and between the countries will help inform health policy in prioritizing and mobilizing the limited healthcare resources with a health equity lens. Using methods of decomposition analysis, the project will estimate the contributions of age-specific causes of deaths in the observed inequality in excess deaths, LE, and YLL, within and across the countries. Special attention will be paid to inequalities in COVID-19 pandemic losses and following recovery of mortality trends.  

In 2020,  we established the Monitoring Mortality Inequality Consortium to produce robust research evidence on global comparative studies on the direct and indirect effects of the COVID-19 pandemic with particular emphasis on intersectional inequalities. The collaboration aims to examine the major drivers of mortality inequality across the world.
