All-cause mortality aged 15-44 years
- Inequalities have grown in relative terms over the long term, but have stabilised in recent years. Absolute inequality shows no clear trend over time.
Between 1997 and 2010, the rate of death amongst those aged 15-44 years has remained broadly stable (between 106 per 100,000 population and 118 per 100,000 population). Within this age group, rates of drug related deaths have doubled over the same period (to around 19 per 100,000), rates of death from assault have remained stable (around 3 per 100,000) and rates of death from suicide have fallen by 14% (to around 20 per 100,000). However, note that the relatively small numbers involved mean that comparison of numbers for single years should be interpreted with caution as there will be natural fluctuation from one year to the next.
Deaths amongst those aged 15-44 years are more common in deprived areas than in areas of low deprivation (238 per 100,000 population compared to 47 per 100,000, in 2010). While there have been some short terms fluctuations in both the relative and absolute level of inequalities, the rates of both have remained broadly stable since 1999.
