Verification of quality of death certification. a comparison between Communal and ISTAT data

L. Angelini, E. Guidi & C. Carletti
The Authors estimate the quality of some variables and in particular the coding of death's causes, recorded in the first ISTAT tape (year 1980). Basing on the obtained results, the Authors state in broad outline a good concordance degree, between ISTAT and Communal data, but the comparison shows differences for single and specific death's causes.
