Abstract

The use of mortality data in L'Aquila public health post-earthquake experience considered as a population's health status indicator is completely missed. The deficit of regional and local epidemiological network in the period preceding the earthquake has clearly revealed a lack of specific activity, for example public reporting of morbidity and mortality in the seismic crater. This absence of a systematic use of current statistics needs a serious reflection concerning investments that regional public health needs to carry out on this topic.
