Causes of Death In Australian Males

Graham Marshall - Monday, September 10, 2012

Below is a list of the most common causes of male deaths in Australia:

●  Heart disease (causes 17% of all male deaths);

●  Lung cancer (6.8%);

●  Stroke (6.4%);

●  Chronic respiratory disease (4.6%); and

●  Prostate cancer (4.1%).

Among young Australians aged 12 to 24 years, there are three male deaths to every one female death.  Accidents and suicide account for most of this difference.
