An interview with Katalin Kovács (Hungarian Demographic Research Institute) on life expectancy.
1. The media often report that men die earlier than women, and poor people sooner than those who are wealthy, is this really true?
2. Comparing the impact of gender and education on mortality, which is stronger?
3. Are these patterns similar everywhere in Europe, or is the situation different in post-socialist central and eastern European countries?
4. Given the current economic situation, which mortality developments are you expecting in central and eastern European countries in the upcoming decades?
