NOTE: Life tables were slightly inaccurately enforced to the established level of e(0), which is why their level is not exactly the same.

presentation of mortality patterns as components of the difference in e(0) corresponds well with the concepts underlying the cluster analysis.

Table 3-2 shows differences between the cluster age mortality patterns and the Russian average, by cause of death. Figures 3-2a through 3-2f show the cause-of-death components of the difference in e(0) between the Russian average and three representative male and female clusters.

The contribution of cause of death to the constitution of age profiles of adult mortality is significant at ages 1 to 55 for injuries, at ages 35 and above for cardiovascular disease, at ages 45 and above for neoplasm, and at ages 45 and above for males and 50 for females for respiratory disease.

Neoplasm, injuries, and cardiovascular disease are the main contributors to the features of the shapes of the cluster mortality patterns. These three causes contribute 73 percent of the variation across clusters for males (injuries, 31 percent; cardiovascular disease, 21 percent; and neoplasms, 21 percent), and 70
