RESUMO

Mortality information derived from data recorded on death certificates compromise one of the oldest and most useful measures of the health status of a country, both nationally and regionally. Ranking the most frequently occurring causes of death is a popular method of presenting mortality statistics and for illustrating the relative proportion of cause-specific mortality. This information could in turn contribute to evidence-based policy-making, to designing interventions for the control and prevention of diseases, to monitoring and evaluating the effectiveness of public health programmes and to allocating financial, human and technical resources for the prevention and control of diseases. This paper attempts to show the relative proportion of mortality using the five leading causes of death in Trinidad and Tobago in order of rank for the years 1980, 1990 and 1998. The review is limited to the general population and no attempt is made to generalize to sub-populations (AU)
