The master's thesis is devoted to the actual topic - the differences in mortality between Moscow and the Moscow region, which are economically, politically, culturally and demographically interconnected. An attempt is made to determine the determinants that influence the formation of a gap in the level of mortality and life expectancy, as one of the key indicators of the socio-economic development of the regions.

In this paper, a comparative analysis of mortality and the main causes of death based on the following: a comparison of the level, structure and age-specific features of mortality. The main causes that contribute the most to the formation of the mortality rate in the compared regions are identified. Age groups and separate classes of causes of death are determined, determining the differences in mortality between the two regions. In addition, an assessment was made of the completeness and quality of recording deaths in Moscow and the Moscow Region. A detailed analysis of the mortality rate for some of the main classes of causes of death: infectious and parasitic diseases, diseases of the circulatory system, neoplasms, respiratory diseases, diseases of the digestive system, injuries and poisonings.
