Abstract
The ageing process of the population in the Samara area, as well as in Russia as a whole, occurs within the background context of a specific demographic situation. This involves the steady natural decline of the population which is not compensated by a positive balance of migration. Research has been carried out in the Samara area from 1995 to 2005 and relates to the ageing of the population. Specific factors addressed include: old age, an index of longevity, and a gender parity of "long-livers". The marked increase in the longevity of the population has been noticed as compared with previous decades. During the last decade the gender parity of "long-livers" of the Samara area remains 1:5 (male: female accordingly). Thus, there is an expressed increase in the index of longevity in the Samara region.

Abstract
A preliminary year among the Eskimos was spent by Henry W. Greist and his trained-nurse wife, Mollie Ward Greist, at Cape Prince of Wales on Bering Strait, during the season 1920-1921. In 1921 the Greists took charge of the Barrow mission and hospital, to remain until 1937. For this review, the author takes departure from Dr. Greist's longevity guesses.

Abstract
Correlation-regression analysis of medical demographic characteristics, parameters of the economic status of the country, and level of life in 1990-1994 showed a marked correlation between a drop of the level of life in Russia and deterioration of the medical demographic situation: decrease of birth rate, increase of mortality, and shortening of the expected life span. The most significant factors were decrease of the total gross product in % of 1990, decrease of the number of staff of industrial enterprises, and a lower consumption of meat and milk products in kg per capita. A single-factor exponential model proved to be the most adequate. The derived equations may be used for predicting the medical demographic parameters for Russia using the detected factors.
