The paper presents some preliminary results of a project devoted to the analysis of adult and elderly mortality evolution in a Northern Italian region, Emilia Romagna, during the health transition. Starting from the construction of 14 period life tables (1871-2007) according to a standardised procedure, the paper develops three main topics: a descriptive analysis of the long-term evolution of elderly survival from the beginning of demographic transition to the present day; an in-depth study of those ages that have made the greatest contribution to the increase in survival during the various different transitional stages; an investigation of the evolution of longevity.

Abstract

The paper presents some preliminary results of a project devoted to the analysis of adult and elderly mortality evolution in a Northern Italian region, Emilia Romagna, during the health transition. Starting from the construction of 14 period life tables (1871-2007) according to a standardised procedure, the paper develops three main topics: a descriptive analysis of the long-term evolution of elderly survival from the beginning of demographic transition to the present day; an in-depth study of those ages that have made the greatest contribution to the increase in survival during the various different transitional stages; an investigation of the evolution of longevity.
