The paper reviews the mortality situation of the Thai elderly using the panel data from the second wave of Health, Aging, and Retirement in Thailand (HART) Project. The preliminary results of the mortality situations by variations in demographic characteristics, work status, causes of death, and inheritance, debts, and insurance are explored. To reduce mortality or induce life security and healthy life expectancy, the results suggest the policy focuses on improving the socioeconomic equality in regional or urban-rural development, conducting preventive health care, promoting elderly employment, strengthening family institution, and improving financial literacy of Thai people at all age groups.
