Background and objectives: YPLL index is important in prioritizing health interventions. This index gives more weight to death of the younger people. Using this index one can calculate major causes of premature death and compare them with other societies. This study is aimed at determining the main causes of premature deaths in Toyserkan.
Methods
: The study population based on the 2011 mortality data was Tuyserkan. Mortality data from death certificates, that had already been extracted and entered into the software, were collected. The standard World Health Organization software was used to calculate YPLL.
Results
: After removing the empty code number, 707 deaths were analyzed. Total mortality rate was 6.7 per 1,000 people. And per 1,000 people, a total of 122.2 years of life was lost due to premature death. Except those aged 30-39 years and 70-79 years, in all age groups the YLL rates in women were higher than in men. Cardiovascular diseases, accidents, respiratory illnesses are placed first to third in the YLL respectively.
Conclusion: The results showed that non-communicable diseases are the main cause of premature death in Tuyserkan while changing patterns of communicable diseases to non-communicable diseases as the leading cause of deaths in the city are seen.
