Convergence analysis represents a distinct stream of research in demography and its findings have both theoretical and practical implications. This article focuses on an analysis of mortality convergence of Czech districts over the years between 1991 and 2015. Selected methods that can be used in this kind of analysis are introduced. The results mainly point to the significant influence of age (especially in relation to the differences in mortality in the oldest age groups) on the process of mortality convergence and the effect of specific regional factors (e.g. some districts lag behind others in mortality).
