This study examined changes in mortality by income in urban Canada from 1971-1986 in terms of both relative & absolute differences between income groups. Data was analyzed by income quintile, age, sex, & cause of death. Results showed that in terms of age-standardized mortality rates for all ages, certain causes of death, including suicide, showed increased mortality together with greater inequality by income, especially for males.
