International conference on the social sciences and medicine. Peebles (GBR), 1992/09/14.
Both the material and non-material aspects of social like are viewed as determinants of major transformations in the patterns of fatal disease and injury.
A « worst case » scenario for the burden of fatal disease is taken as a poor agrarian society precariously dependent on starchy staples and a narrow range of other foods.
In such a society life expectancy may be as low as 20.
However in many « pre-modern » societies the regime of roughly matching fertility and mortality levels was set at a « submaximal » level, with completed fertility rates moderated by marriage conventions.
