The purpose of this study was to determine the impact of chronic diseases of lifestyle on the mortality pattern of South Africans and to estimate the number of South Africans affected by major risk factors for these diseases.
The proportion of deaths due to chronic diseases of lifestyle was calculated from the deaths reported to the Central Statistical Services.
This group of diseases was responsible for 24,5% of deaths of all South Africans and 28,5% of those aged 35-64 years whose deaths were reported in 1988.
