This study sought to demonstrate that health status varies markedly in different parts of China.
The main source of data was statistics compiled by the Chinese Ministry for Public Health for 1978 to 1990 regarding causes of death.
However, because mortality statistics in China are based on localities that have the capacity to provide data, they are not entirely representative.
The international classification of disease categories was also used, together with anatomically based disease descriptions.
