Preliminary investigation into mortality rates and expectation of life for section 75 groups and social class.

The aim of the current study is to produce a set of mortality rates and life tables relating to each of the section 75 groups present in the 2001 census along with key socio-economic measures. This will be accomplished by aggregating several years’ worth of mortality data (2001-2006) with age-standardised mortality rates and standardised rate ratios produced along with confidence intervals to allow identification of significant differences between various population groups and the general population.
