India Attempts To Track Premature Deaths Through Survey

New York Times: Door by Door, India Strives to Know More About Death
“…Nearly 70 percent of deaths in India, five million in all each year, take place in the absence of medical supervision, according to the [Office of the Registrar General of India], which is responsible for registering births and deaths. To fill this gap, a new survey, the Million Death Study, is trying to turn the clock back on a million premature deaths that took place between 2001 and 2014, sifting through evidence provided by families and caregivers…” (Vyawahare, 5/22).
