Background We compared mortality inequalities by occupational class in Japan and South Korea with those in European countries, in order to determine whether patterns are similar. Methods National register-based data from Japan, South Korea and eight European countries (Finland, Denmark, England/Wales, France, Switzerland, Italy (Turin), Estonia, Lithuania) covering the period between 1990 and 2015 were collected and harmonised. We calculated age-standardised all-cause and cause-specific mortalit...

There is evidence that replacing saturated fat (SFA) with polyunsaturated fat (PUFA) lowers ischemic heart disease (IHD). In order to improve the population’s diet, the World Health Organization has called for the taxation of foods that are high in SFA. We aimed to assess the potential health gains of a European fat tax by applying the SFA intake reduction that has been observed under the Danish fat tax to six other European countries. For each country, we created a fat tax scenario with a decre...

Unfavorable health trends among the lowly educated have recently been reported from the United States. We analyzed health trends by education in European countries, paying particular attention to the possibility of recent trend interruptions, including interruptions related to the impact of the 2008 financial crisis. We collected and harmonized data on mortality from ca . 1980 to ca . 2014 for 17 countries covering 9.8 million deaths and data on self-reported morbidity from ca . 2002 to ca . 201...

Cijfers van het Centraal Bureau voor de Statistiek (CBS) laten zien dat de levensverwachting van hoogopgeleide mensen ruim zes jaar hoger is dan die van laagopgeleiden. De verschillen in gezonde levensverwachting zijn beduidend groter. Deze grote verschillen in gezonde levensverwachting hebben belangrijke implicaties voor het kunnen blijven werken tot de pensioengerechtigde leeftijd, participeren in de samenleving of het genieten van het pensioen.

Little is known about the effectiveness of health care in reducing inequalities in health. We assessed trends in inequalities in mortality from conditions amenable to health care in seventeen European countries in the period 1980–2010 and used models that included country fixed effects to study the determinants of these trends. Our findings show remarkable declines over the study period in amenable mortality among people with a low level of education. We also found stable absolute inequalities i...

Forecasts of life expectancy (LE) have fuelled debates about the sustainability and dependability of pension and healthcare systems. Of relevance to these debates are inequalities in LE by education. In this paper, we present a method of forecasting LE for different educational groups within a population. As a basic framework we use the Li–Lee model that was developed to forecast mortality coherently for different groups. We adapted this model to distinguish between overall, sex-specific, and ed...

Abstract Forecasts of life expectancy (LE) have fueled debates about the sustainability and solidarity of pension and health care systems. However, within populations there are large and growing inequalities in life expectancy between high and low educated groups that are relevant for these debates. In this paper, we present an approach to forecast LE for different educational groups within a population. As a basic framework we will use the Li-Lee model which has been developed as to coherently ...

De sterfte onder daklozen is aanzienlijk hoger dan die in de algemene bevolking. De gemeente Rotterdam nam vanaf 2006 maatregelen om het forse aantal dak- en thuislozen in de stad terug te dringen en om passende zorg, inkomen en huisvesting voor hen te arrangeren. Hierdoor zijn de leefomstandigheden van deze kwetsbare groep aanzienlijk verbeterd. Onderzocht is of deze maatregelen ook van invloed waren op de sterfte onder daklozen.
