White C, Edgar G, Siegler V. Social inequalities in male mortality for selected causes of death by the National Statistics Socio-Economic Classification, England and Wales, 2001-03. Health Statistics Quarterly 2008; 38 (2): 19-32.

This article reports social inequalities in mortality in selected causes of death for men aged 25-64 years in England and Wales in 2001-03. It is the first compilation of mortality statistics in causes of death by the final version of the National Statistics Socio-Economic Classification, which was introduced into death registrations in 2001. These results follow up the all-cause analyses reported previously using similar methods, and provide insights into the impacts of different social and occupational circumstances on selected causes of death.
