Asaria P, Fortunato L, Fecht D, Tzoulaki I, Jose Abellan J, Hambly P, de Hoogh K, Ezzati M, Elliott Pet al., 2012, Trends and inequalities in cardiovascular disease mortality across 7932 English electoral wards, 1982-2006: Bayesian spatial analysis, International Journal of Epidemiology, Vol: 41, Pages: 1737-1749, ISSN: 1464-3685

Background Cardiovascular disease (CVD) mortality has more than halved in England since the 1980s, but there are few data on small-area trends. We estimated CVD mortality by ward in 5-year intervals between 1982 and 2006, and examined trends in relation to starting mortality, region and community deprivation.Methods We analysed CVD death rates using a Bayesian spatial technique for all 7932 English electoral wards in consecutive 5-year intervals between 1982 and 2006, separately for men and women aged 30–64 years and ≥65 years.Results Age-standardized CVD mortality declined in the majority of wards, but increased in 186 wards for women aged ≥65 years. The decline was larger where starting mortality had been higher. When grouped by deprivation quintile, absolute inequality between most- and least-deprived wards narrowed over time in those aged 30–64 years, but increased in older adults; relative inequalities worsened in all four age–sex groups. Wards with high CVD mortality in 2002–06 fell into two groups: those in and around large metropolitan cities in northern England that started with high mortality in 1982–86 and could not ‘catch up’, despite impressive declines, and those that started with average or low mortality in the 1980s but ‘fell behind’ because of small mortality reductions.Conclusions Improving population health and reducing health inequalities should be treated as related policy and measurement goals. Ongoing analysis of mortality by small area is essential to monitor local effects on health and health inequalities of the public health and healthcare systems.

Background: Socio-economic inequalities in mortality are observed at the country level in both North America and Europe.The purpose of this work is to investigate the contribution of specific risk factors to social inequalities in cause-specificmortality using a large multi-country cohort of Europeans.Methods: A total of 3,456,689 person/years follow-up of the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition(EPIC) was analysed. Educational level of subjects coming from 9 European countries was recorded as proxy for socioeconomicstatus (SES). Cox proportional hazard model’s with a step-wise inclusion of explanatory variables were used toexplore the association between SES and mortality; a Relative Index of Inequality (RII) was calculated as measure of relativeinequality.Results: Total mortality among men with the highest education level is reduced by 43% compared to men with the lowest(HR 0.57, 95% C.I. 0.52–0.61); among women by 29% (HR 0.71, 95% C.I. 0.64–0.78). The risk reduction was attenuated by 7%in men and 3% in women by the introduction of smoking and to a lesser extent (2% in men and 3% in women) byintroducing body mass index and additional explanatory variables (alcohol consumption, leisure physical activity, fruit andvegetable intake) (3% in men and 5% in women). Social inequalities were highly statistically significant for all causes ofdeath examined in men. In women, social inequalities were less strong, but statistically significant for all causes of deathexcept for cancer-related mortality and injuries.Discussion: In this European study, substantial social inequalities in mortality among European men and women whichcannot be fully explained away by accounting for known common risk factors for chronic diseases are reported.
