C2  POPULATION HEALTH STATISTICS

The number of births in Prague has been permanently growing since the end of the 1990s. The increased natality in recent years may be a consequence of the implementation of postponed maternity of highly populated generations of females born in the 1970s. The number of abortions has been permanently dropping since the 1990s and the portion of artificial interruptions has been decreasing as well. Neonatal and infant mortalities have been decreasing and already reached very low value.

The total number of deaths and the number of deaths per 1,000 inhabitants have been moderately decreasing. The standardised mortality in Prague is for both sexes lower than that of the whole Czech Republic. Since 1990 the standardised mortality has been permanently decreasing in both sexes. The standardised mortality of females is lower in the Czech Republic as well as in Prague than that of males. The average age and average life expectancy of males and females are both increasing. The most frequent cause of death is diseases of cardiovascular system lead by other ischemic diseases of hearth and vascular diseases of cerebrum and than followed by neoplasms. The number of deaths caused by neoplasms per 100,000 inhabitants has been slowly decreasing.

Incidence of malignant neplasms per 100,000 inhabitants has been overall moderately increasing. Carcinomas of trachea, brochi, and lungs (C33–34) are one of the first ranked in males and females. While incidence in males, even though it is still high, has been rather stagnating in recent years, in females it has been growing over a long-term. In males another important diagnosis is the malignant tumor of prostate gland (C61), which incidence per 100,000 inhabitants is ranked the first. In females the fist rank of incidence is occupied by malignant breast tumor (C50).
