    • Abstract:
      The authors comment on the need for the U.S. to improve its death certificates, one which provides an accurate accounting of the events leading to death. Topics covered include how the problems in death certificates show a distorted picture of the nation's health, the problems with the lack of standard forms that are often filled out incompletely or inaccurately, and how the adoption of electronic death certificates would help address the problems.
