ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a study, which overviews premature mortality in Spain for the year 2008. A population-based study was conducted, to estimate standard expected years of life lost (SEYLL) by sex and age groups. It was concluded that chronic non-communicable diseases were essentially responsible for premature mortality in Spain.
