Resumen
 

Objective: To analyze mortality from all causes in Mexico during the winter months.

Methods: Data was extracted and tabulated on monthly all-cause mortality in the general population from 2000 to 2012 from the INEGI database. Coefficients of seasonal variation in mortality were calculated.

Results: In Mexico there was an increase of 14 % in mortality in the general population during winter. The more susceptible age groups were older people and children, with increases of 18% and 13% respectively. The months with low levels of mortality were April, October and September for children, adolescents and older people respectively.

Conclusions: Important increases in winter mortality occur in Mexico.
