Abstract

Our objective is to quantify the mortality from AIDS, narcotic related deaths, and traffic accidents among those between 15 and 39 years of age, in the Community of Madrid, 1990-1991. Data provided by the Regional Register of AIDS, Forensic Institute of Madrid, local police teams and the Traffic Directorate General have been used. Mortality from traffic accidents ranked first as a cause of death, followed by narcotic-related deaths and AIDS, both for men and women.
