  1. The increasing disparity in mortality between socioeconomic groups in the United States, 1960 and 1986.

    Article - En anglais

    Background

    There is an inverse relation between socioeconomic status and mortality.

    Over the past several decades death rates in the United States have declined, but it is unclear whether all socioeconomic groups have benefited equally.

    Methods

    Using records from the 1986 National Mortality Followback Survey (n=13,491) and the 1986 National Health Interview Survey (n=30,725), we replicated the analysis by Kitagawa and Hauser of differential mortality in 1960.

    We calculated direct standardized mortality rates and indirect standardized mortality ratios for persons 25 to 64 years of age according to race, sex, income, and family status.
