Deprivation and Death: Variation in place and cause of death

This report looks at patterns of death in England by socioeconomic deprivation. It:

  • examines the interaction between deprivation, sex and age group, and place and underlying cause of death
  • improves our understanding of deprivation as a key factor influencing end of life care, and
  • adds to the evidence base for those making decisions about the provision and commissioning of care and aiming to reduce inequalities.
