Social class differences in mortality in Great Britain around 1981

The Decennial Supplement on Occupational Mortality published in 1978 commented on mortality differences between the social classes using data from the 1971 Census and the deaths in the period 1970–72. The analysis was based on life tables prepared for the individual social classes from which derived indices, for example expectations of life, were calculated. It is proposed here to repeat this exercise using the data for males recently published in microfiche form by the Office of Population Censuses and Surveys.
