Changes in mortality risks are measured according to a statistical criterion. This criterion helps to identify the desired reduction in age-specific mortality risk. During the last four decades, a survey of 15 industrialized countries showed that changes in age-specific mortality rates pointed towards age groups whose reduction in mortality deviated from the optimal shift. Further observations showed consistent differences between the different gender groups and also found a country specific shift. This research found that richer countries displayed less systematic changes.
