District-level variations in the quality of mortality data in thailand

Different studies on variations of cause-specific mortality provide different policy implications and suggestions. Some findings mirror existing health care and services. Costantini and others (2000) concluded that differences in proportions of cancer patients dying at home across 13 provinces in Italy could not be explained by the known determinants, suggesting inappropriate hospital admission in the terminal phase of cancer. A study on geographical variations in breast cancer mortality in older American women by Goodwin and others (2002) suggested ways to improve the quality of breast cancer care. Some studies suggest further research in specific areas.
