Cause-specific mortality fractions for 145 adult deaths. The figure shows cause-specific mortality fractions for 145 deaths derived from hospital causes of death, verbal autopsies interpreted by physician, and by the InterVA model. The CSMFs obtained were within ± 5% of those derived using the gold standard for the four most common causes of death (HIV-related, cardiovascular diseases, meningitis, and diabetes) and were within ± 8% of the gold standard value for tuberculosis (pulmonary).
