Income related inequalities in avoidable mortality in norway: A population-based study using data from 1994-2011

Sammendrag

Objective: The aim of this study was to measure income-related inequalities in avoidable,amenable and preventable mortality in Norway over the period 1994–2011.Methods: We undertook a register-based population study of Norwegian residents aged18–65 years between 1994 and 2011, using data from the Norwegian Income Register andthe Cause of Death Registry. Concentration indices were used to measure income-relatedinequalities in avoidable, amenable and preventable mortality for each year. We comparedthe trend in income-related inequality in avoidable mortality with the trend in incomeinequality, measured by the Gini coefficient for income.Results: Avoidable, amenable and preventable deaths in Norway have declined over time.There were persistent pro-poor socioeconomic inequalities in avoidable, amenable andpreventable mortality, and the degree of inequality was larger in preventable mortality thanin amenable mortality throughout the period. The income-avoidable mortality associationwas positively correlated with income inequalities in avoidable mortality over time. Therewas little or no relationship between variations in the Gini coefficient due to tax reformsand socioeconomic inequalities in avoidable mortality.Conclusions: Income-related inequalities in avoidable, amenable and preventable mortalityhave remained relatively constant between 1994 and 2011 in Norway. They were mainlycorrelated with the relationship between income and avoidable mortality rather than withvariations in the Gini coefficient of income inequality.
