The Increase in Death and Disease under "Katastroika."
AbstractThe crude death rate rose from 10.5 in 1987 to 14.6 in 1993. As a result, male life expectancy dropped by seven years. Morbidity has also increased significantly, e.g., for diphtheria, syphilis, and tuberculosis. The health of pregnant women and the newly born has continued to deteriorate. This paper presents the available mortality and morbidity data for the U.S.S.R. in 1987-91 and for the successor states since 1991, and analyzes the causes of this sharp deterioration from comparative, historical, epidemiological, and political economy points of view.
