    The Determinants of Mortality. Robert Lucas once famously said regarding the determinants of economic growth, "once one starts to think about them, it is hard to think of anything else." The same could be said for the determinants of mortality, since the length of life . The first two of these seven determinants determine the length of reproductive span and the other five determine the rate of child- bearing.” 3. Social Factors: Social factors like religion, caste, race, family system, education, status of woman, etc. also influence fertility in a .

    The length of the birth interval has a negative association with the infant and child mortality, i.e., the smaller the birth interval, the higher is the child mortality. Many other factors such as immunization status of children and delivery practice may also influence infant and child mortality [ 16 – 18 ]. At this time period life in large cities was characterized by many deaths due to infectious disease. According to the death records collected from the year to by the city of Toronto, % of the total population died from gastroenteritis or typhoid.

    Endogenetic processes. These refer to internal/bodily factors, such as disease. Exogenetic processes. These refer to external factors such as the indices to gauge components of poulation change areLife Expectancy. This is the the number of years a child can expect to live under current conditions. It is also the average length of life of a defined population. Actually, one byproduct of the mortality forecasts is that our models can predict life expectancy for all countries until There is an increase at the global level, but it will slow down, especially in the last half of this century. We will have less growth in life expectancy in the coming 80 .

Pollard. Life expectancy is the dependent variable with demographics, socioeconomic status, and health care resources as the 3 main determinants. A structural equation model is used, and results show that the availability of more health care resources and higher levels of socioeconomic advantages are more likely to increase life expectancy.
