population quality, health, mortality, life expectancy at birth


One of the main components of the population quality is health. This study approaches health from the geodemographic point of view, in order to emphasize the population quality aspects. The progressive analysis of the demographic population health indicators points out the causes of increasing or decreasing population health. The territorial analysis highlights the districts where the population health is lower or higher. So there can be outlined some causes at the regional and local levels. This research could be used for the elaboration of some demographic policies in order to improve or keep a high level of the population’s health in the Republic of Moldova. The population health is a necessity for the economic development of the country.
