State of mortality differs across members of the European Union. That state of mortality can be represented using a couple of different measures. The most widely used measures for comparing mortality across countries are standardized mortality rate and life expectancy. The state of mortality across the EU and Serbia is compared using standardized amenable mortality rate. The results show that Serbia and the other excommunistcountries have higher amenable mortality rate that the other countries in EU. Correlation between amenable mortality rate and health expenditure has also been established. Countries that spend more than $2000 per capita on healthcare get diminishing returns. The ex-communist countries spend less than $2000 on healthcare per capita, with the exception of Slovenia. Serbia spends about $550 per capita for healthcare, and with its current annual GDP growth it would take more than 50 years for Serbia to get to the $2000 threshold.
