There is very little information on differences in mortality by socio-economic group in Ireland. Only one major study has been done in this area.

That Cited by: There is very little information on differences in mortality by socio-economic group in Ireland. Only one major study has been done in this area. That study was based on data for and confined to aggregate deaths for males aged between 15 and The objective of this paper is to extend the previous work along a number of important by: analyses of trends over time in socio-economic inequalities in mortality in Ireland but these only considered the period up to the mids (Barryet al., ; O’Shea, ; O’Shea, ).

Analyses of trends across time were not possible due to the increasing proportion of cases where socio-economic group was missing from the early s.

Ill IRISH MORTALITY DIFFERENTIALS BY SOCIO-ECONOMIC GROUP FOR MEN AGED The data on which we base the analysis of mortality by socio-economic group for Irish men are shown in Table 1: the number of men aged in the population inand deaths of such men in that year, classified by age range and socio-economic group.

The presence of pronounced inequalities in mortality and life expectancy across income, education and social groups is now well established. Research across a large number of developed and wealthy countries, including Ireland, has shown that those with fewer resources, less education or a lower occupational class have higher standardised mortality rates (SMRs) than more advantaged individuals.

The presence of pronounced inequalities in mortality and life expectancy across income, education and social groups has long been a “stylized fact” of demography. Research across a large number of developed and wealthy countries, including Ireland, has shown that those with fewer resources, less education or a lower occupational class have higher standardised mortality rates (SMRs) than.

However, trends in absolute mortality differentials are more varied both across countries and within countries. In this paper, we examine trends, both overall and by cause, in relative and absolute mortality differentials across SEG in Ireland from the s to the s and compare these patterns with published evidence for other countries.

socioeconomic differentials helps to identify high-risk groups to which health programs can be most efficiently directed. This chapter reviews recent evidence about the extent and sources of socioeconomic differences in mortality and health among older persons in the United States, with some reference to other countries.

These results are similar to those found in Britain, where deaths from malignant neoplasms are highest in the lower socio-economic groups (O’Shea ).

Research across a large number of developed and wealthy countries, including Ireland, has shown that those with fewer resources, less education, or a lower occupational class have higher Standardised Mortality Rates (SMRs) than more advantaged individuals.

Indeed, within an Irish context, the gradient in mortality across socio-economic groups has increased between the s and s, with a greater widening of the gap amongst men (Layte et al.

Abstract. Background: The study of mortality differentials by class or socio-economic group is underdeveloped in Ireland in comparison to other countries. The work that has been done has used a standardized mortality ratio (SMR) methodology to measure deaths. There has been no previous work exploring the social gradient in years of potential life lost (YPLL) in Ireland.

Methods: The aim is to investigate socio-economic mortality differentials for men aged between 15 and 69 in Ireland, using VILL as a measure of premature mortality. The design is a mortality trends study. It has been recognised for some time that mortality rates vary across social class groups, with lower rates in the higher social classes.

Internationally, but particularly in Ireland, many studies on the topic of inequalities in mortality have been confined to men, partly because the most frequently used socioeconomic classification, that based on occupation, can less easily be applied to.

Downloadable (with restrictions). The opportunities for research of socio-economic differences in mortality are best in countries where a sytem of personal identification numbers makes the computerised linkage of census and death records possible.

The first part of this study is an example of the use of such linked records. It presents results on the development of mortality differences by. Increased attention in recent years to differences between socio-economic groups, in part in response to initiatives by the World Health Organisation, has again exposed the limitations of traditional data.
