Top Causes of Mortality Worldwide Projected to 2020 in New Espico Study Available at

21 Jun 2012 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – There are lots of complex reasons lying behind the shifting outlook for the cause of mortality rates worldwide. For the more developed countries, the ageing population evidently plays a prominent role, with circulatory diseases and neoplasms accounting for the majority of deaths, but as healthcare technology and lifestyle improvements start to impact related mortality, then other causes of death related to longevity become more prevalent. As far as less developed countries are concerned, healthcare technology and health information may be less obtainable. This in turn can result in increased incidence of deaths stemming from preventable or treatable diseases like circulatory disease, cancer and diabetes.

It is expected that by 2020-end, the mortality rate per 100,000 population will fall globally in such key conditions as breast cancer and respiratory diseases.
