This volume provides a comprehensive overview of the adult mortality situation in India. Each chapter ranges from general adult mortality patterns to its consequences in India. It discusses data-related challenges to studying adult mortality and examines the level, trends, and changing patterns, whether convergence or divergence of adult mortality across the regions from 1981 to 2015. Analyzing the mortality risk across different socioeconomic groups of the population in India, it examines the major underlying causes of adult death with a detailed analysis of external causes of death. The volume enhances the reader's understanding of adult health situations through the lenses of gender, caste, religion, rural-urban, economic status, and region of residence, and its severe consequences at the household level. It is a valuable addition to knowledge on demography, epidemiology, health economics, applied statistics, and public health studies worldwide. It is a must-reference work for Master's and Ph.D. scholars to explore India's and low- and middle-income countries' mortality situations.
