Presents maps showing geographic distributions or mortality associated with nearly all respiratory diseases. For categories of traditional occupational lung diseases mapped in this atlas, nearly all cases are attributable to hazardous occupational exposure. For other respiratory disease categories, cases frequently occur in the absence of hazardous occupational exposure, although occupational cases have been documented. For this atlas, data for 1982-1993 were used, and U.S. residents 15 years of age and older. 17 disease categories were selected for mapping. For each condition, the number of d

Cardiovascular disease now ranks as the world's top cause of death, causing one third of all deaths globally. Heart disease can no longer be seen as the problem of overworked and overweight middle-aged men in developed countries. In today's world, women and children too are at risk. Already 75% of all CVD deaths occur in the poorer regions of the world and this is likely to increase in the future. Following on from the success of WHO's Tobacco Atlas, the Atlas of Heart Disease and Stroke addresses this most urgent health issue in a ground-breaking, clear and accessible format, designed to info

A color atlas depicting the geographical patterns of death, by cause and by sex throughout Europe, at both national and subnational levels. Data from 1980/1981 and 1990/1991 are included to facilitate the detection of trends over time. Furthermore, by showing mortality rates for administrative areas within countries, the atlas allows detection of geographical differences that are concealed when national average mortality rates are used alone for the purposes of international comparisons. The atlas is the result of a project conducted by the WHO European Centre for Environment and Health in col
