  1. International variation in the size of mortality differences associated with occupational status.

    Article - En anglais


    Previous international comparisons on the size of mortality differences associated with occupational status have relied on inequality indices with one or more limitations.

    This study reassesses the international pattern of inequalities in mortality using an inequality index devised recently.


    Data on mortality by social class were obtained from longitudinal studies from seven countries.

    The data referred to men aged 35-64 years.

    The follow-up period was approximately 1971-1981.
