At the CSDE seminar on October 9, Dr. Magali Barbieri will present “Deprivation and Mortality in the UnitedStates, 1999-2018”. The talk will explore the relationship between county-level mortality in the U.S. and social inequality, using data from the National Center for Health Statistics and the American Community Survey. Dr. Barbieri has a prolific research career focusing on mortality and cause of death information in high income countries, including many studies on within-country variability and, also, international comparisons. She has been integral in leading, building and maintaining the Human Mortality Database, where she is currently the Associate Director, and the United States Mortality DataBase, where she serves as the Director.
