The size of mortality differences associated with educational level in nine industrialized countries.
This study addresses the question of whether inequalities in premature mortality related to educational level differ among countries.
Data on mortality by educational level were obtained from longitudinal studies from nine industrialized countries.
The data referred to men between 35 and 64 years of age.
The follow-up periods occurred between 1970 and 1982.
The size of mortality differences associated with educational level was measured by means of two inequality indices, both based on Poisson regression analysis.
