Deprivation and mortality in Scotland, 1981 and 1991.
To compare the mortality experience of Scottish postcode sectors characteriseil by socioeconomic census variables (Carstairs scores) in 1980-2 and 1990-2.
Methods-Variables derived from the 1981 and 1991 censuses were combined according to the method devised by Carstairs and Morris to obtain Carstairs scores for 1010 postcode sectors in Scotland in 1981 and 1001 sectors in 1991.
For most analyses, these scores were grouped into seven deprivation categories ranging from affluent (category 1) to deprived (category 7) localities.
Main outcome measures-Death rates and standardised mortality ratios for localities according to deprivation category.
