The mortality of a cohort of long-term unemployed men and women in Sweden (N=28,846) was followed up during the period 1980-1986.
Compared to a population of employed, the total mortality rate ratios (with 95% confidence limit) were 1.37 (1.22-1.53); for men 1.61 (1.42-1.84) and for women 1.14 (0.91-1.42).
The young/middle-aged men had about four times higher relative mortality than all men.
Suicide and alcohol-related deaths could not explain the excess mortality among these men.
