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