Other information:

The Northern Ireland Mortality Linkage study (NIMLS) links mortality data from the General Register Office to 2001 Census returns enabling a broader analyses of age standardised mortality rates (ASMR) than has been possible previously.

Analyses conducted were designed to reflect both the categories identified under the statutory equality duty (Section 75 of the Northern Ireland Act 1998), and measures associated with relative social disadvantage.

In general, mortality rates across most dimensions examined are gendered. In particular, there are strong relationships between ASMR and measures of relative social disadvantage. The relationship of ASMR with social disadvantage along non-housing dimensions appears disproportionately stronger for males compared to females.
