One of a series of reports presenting a methodology to help health planners develop objectives and actions by means of selected health status indicators that may be amenable to health care interventions. Using the algorithms, health system agencies can investigate determinants of health status, identify possible breakdowns in the health care system, and specify remedies. The algorithms rely primarily on vital statistics. The algorithm given in this report in the series should assist health system agencies in assessing the problem of breast cancer mortality in a given population and should further assist them in developing specific strategies for decreasing breast cancer mortality.
