Mortality among the elderly in Sweden by social class.
Total mortality has been analysed for elderly Swedish men and women by social class.
Information on social and demographic factors was obtained from the 1960 Population Census.
The mortality was followed up from 1961 to 1979.
The study indicates that there are evident social class differences in mortality among people aged 65-83 years.
We found increasing class differences with increased age among women, but decreasing class differences with increased age among men.
