  1. Higher mortality in deprived areas : community or personal disadvantage ?

    Article - En anglais


    To investigate the association between level of social deprivation in electoral wards and premature mortality among residents, before and after allowing for levels of personal deprivation.

    Design-Longitudinal study of the Office of Population Censuses and Surveys.


    Subjects-Random sample of nearly 300 000 people aged between 16 and 65 at the 1981 census and followed up for nearly nine years.

    Main outcome measure-Death from all causes between ages of 16 and 70.


    Without allowance for personal disadvantage, both sexes showed a clear, significant, and roughly linear positive relation between degree of deprivation of the ward of residence in 1981 and premature death before 1990.
