Lecture

'Mortality and Deprivation'

Abstract: 

The index of multiple deprivation (IMD) combines indices for different types of relative deprivation. The IMD is available for small areas in England. We consider mortality rates for specific IMD deciles from the most deprived 10% to the least deprived 10% of the male population in England. The aim is to compare different multi-population models to capture the mortality differentials between the ten IMD groups. I will present our empirical findings so far, and provide some of our (early) conclusions.
