The workshop focused on updating the classification of the determinants of the real causes of premature death in the United States and will review previous work in the field in light of new data generated since the release of US Health in International Perspective: Shorter Lives, Poorer Health and Explaining Divergent Levels of Longevity in High-Income Countries.

Presentations considered the state of the science of measuring the determinants of the causes of premature death, assess the availability and quality of data sources, and chart future courses of action to improve the understanding of the causes of premature death.
