    Differences in death rates between socio-economic groups have been the focus of a great deal of attention internationally. In the UK, for example, these differences have been studied for over a century, and interest in the topic was given new impetus by the Black Report (DHSS 1980). This report not only pointed to very large differences in death rates between occupational classes in Britain, but suggested that these differences had increased rather than decreased from the early 1930s to 1971. Partly as a result, a substantial body of research on the interpretation of the available British data and its limitations, and on the causal factors at work, has been produced. In 1987, a follow-up report by the Health Education Council (Whitehead 1987) further fuelled the debate, concluding that inequalities in death rates between non-manual and manual groups· in Britain widened in the decade from 1971 to 1981.
