Implications of Russian immigration on mortality patterns in Israel.
Many immigrants from the former USSR arrived in Israel during the period 1989 to 1992 and now comprise 10% of the Israeli population.
They are expected to cause a change in the health profile of the country due to their different patterns of disease and an analysis was undertaken to predict these expected changes, Method.
Official mortality statistics from Israel and the USSR were compared for differences in major causes of death.
Russian mortality rates were then incorporated into a calculation taking into account the total size of the Israeli population and the relative size of immigrant population to give the expected overall age-adjusted mortality in Israel following the wave of immigration.
