Abstract

The aim of the present study was to examine, in the literature, aspects related to mortality differentials among men and women, focusing on age related differences in the time course (for developing countries). We did find evidence that, over the two last centuries, the sex differences followed the demographic and epidemiologic transitions. This process was accompained by a change in the age pattern of mortality comparing men and women. On the other hand, the contribution of the age groups for the differentials in life expectancy at birth not always folowed the change in the gap. We concluded that we should use more than one measure of the gap in mortality.
