Avoidable mortality in the United States and Canada, 1980-1996

Manuel DG, Mao Y. Am J Public Health. 2002; 92(9):1481-4.

In this study the researchers examined avoidable mortality in the United States and Canada from 1980 to 1996. They postulated that there may be differences in avoidable mortality between the 2 countries, and that, if differences existed, avoidable mortality might be a useful population-based outcome measure that would encourage further evaluation and improvement of health care systems.
