Differential Mortality: Methodological Issues and Biosocial Factors

Edited by Lado Ruzicka, Guillaume Wunsch and Penny Kane

in OUP Catalogue from Oxford University Press

Abstract: There are strongly pronounced differentials between survival chances for different social classes in less developed countries. This book gives insight into the variety of factors-biological, social, economic and cultural-associated with these inequalities in mortality rates. Certain of the papers deal with new conceptual approaches and methodological issues, while others cover particular countries in Asia and Latin America, providing overall an important and provoking study of inequality in death.
