La mortalidad nos da una buena aproximaci√≥n al estado de salud de las poblaciones; al ser un fen√≥meno demogr√°fico inevitable, irrepetible e irreversible permite generar indicadores que ayudan a comprender la situaci√≥n actual de mortalidad en un determinado territorio.¬†En Espa√Īa la mayor parte de los fallecimientos se debe a enfermedades cr√≥nicas, fundamentalmente cardiovasculares y c√°ncer, que llevan asociados diferentes factores de riesgo evitables.
