Data

  • ‘In marked contrast to financial data, some of which are available instantaneously and others, such as economic growth, within a few weeks, data on mortality in many countries are delayed by several years’ (McKee et al., 2012)

  • Even now the full extent of the crisis on health is obscured by lack of available data.
