Sozioökonomische Aspekte der veränderten Mortalität der koronaren Herzerkrankung in der Schweiz; 1988-1993


Sagmeister, M; Gessner, U; Horisberger, B; Gutzwiller, Felix (1998). Sozioökonomische Aspekte der veränderten Mortalität der koronaren Herzerkrankung in der Schweiz; 1988-1993. Swiss Medical Weekly, 128(10):356-62.

Abstract

Mortality from ischemic heart disease (ICD 410-414) is changing. Remarkable decreases have been observed in the age groups from 35-64 years, while overall mortality (all age groups) has remained approximately stable. In Switzerland this has meant a gain of some 4700 life years in the period 1988 to 1993 in the working population (35-64 years). The object of this study was to assess the associated change in indirect costs (productivity losses) due to premature death, using the human capital approach. The indirect costs were CHF 519 million (CHF 7.5 million per 100,000 population) in 1993. This represents approximately half of all indirect costs (and 25% of the total costs generated by the disease). Compared with the year 1988, a decrease in productivity losses due to premature death was observed amounting to CHF 46 million (-11%) in constant Swiss francs. Society benefits from this decrease in indirect costs, a desirable development hardly ever mentioned.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
