Discrepant legacies : premature mortality in two industrial towns.
Previous research has indicated that, while large parts of Middlesbrough and Sunderland appear to be equally severely deprived, premature mortality in the early 1980s was substantially worse in Middlesbrough.
Postcoded mortality data from 1975 to 1986 were assembled, to ascertain whether this disparity reflected a temporary or consistent difference between these two towns.
In addition, to enable detailed consideration of the differentials in premature mortality, data on cause of death for 23 cause-groups were assembled for the 6-year period 1978 to 1983.
The results show that, throughout the 12-year period, death rates below the age of 65 years in Middlesbrough's poorer areas consistently exceeded death rates in comparable areas of Sunderland by a large margin.
