Seasonal fluctuations in mortality are a persistent phenomenon, but variations from culture to culture pose fascinating questions. This book investigates whether sociodemographic and socioeconomic factors play a role as important for seasonal mortality as they do for mortality in general. Using modern statistical methods, the book shows, for example, that in the United States the fluctuations between winter and summer mortality are smaller the more years someone has spent in school.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"Roland Rau's monograph on 'Seasonality in Human Mortality' is really welcome. Based on his dissertation, the book comprises two original studies of seasonal mortality, one in the US and the other in Denmark. ... This book is the third volume of the Demographic Research Monographs series published since 2004 by Springer for the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research. ... It is highly appreciated that the new series is also open to young and promising researchers." (Jean-Marie Robine, European Journal of Population, Vol. 24, 2008)
