The quality of the certificates of death for 2429 cases, all the residents died at home in the USL 70 during the period 1.8.83-31.12.87, was evaluated thanks to the necroscopic activity of the Legnano's Hospital pathologist. All the information, oral or written, available about each case was used to check the family doctor's certificate. Any correction to the certificate was discussed with the certifier. During the period a gradual and progressive reduction of error in the statement of the underlying cause of death was shown. The improvement comes out using different quality indicators.
