The "Taranto case" has aroused the scientific interest of demographers, statisticians, epidemiologists and doctors, to understand what is happening today to the health of citizens, finding excesses of mortality and morbidity in certain pathologies strictly connected to pollution, in particular in the Ionian capital and in some neighboring municipalities. We have developed abbreviated mortality tables, using a methodology essentially different from that of Istat due to the fact that we do not rework the probabilities of death at all, which remain real. This solution is valid as Taranto is a large municipality, with almost 200,000 inhabitants.

Abstract

The "Taranto case" has aroused the scientific interest of demographers, statisticians, epidemiologists and doctors, to understand what is happening today to the health of citizens, finding excesses of mortality and morbidity in certain pathologies strictly connected to pollution, in particular in the Ionian capital and in some neighboring municipalities. We have developed abbreviated mortality tables, using a methodology essentially different from that of Istat due to the fact that we do not rework the probabilities of death at all, which remain real. This solution is valid as Taranto is a large municipality, with almost 200,000 inhabitants.
