Medical care and regional mortality differences within the countries of the European community.

Abstract

"This paper addresses the question whether regional mortality differences within developed countries reflect differences in characteristics of medical care service. It adds two new elements to previous studies on this subject: it concentrates on selected 'avoidable' causes of death, and it makes parallel analyses for ten [European Community] countries. The results show that levels of medical care supply contribute little to the explanation of regional differences in mortality from the selected conditions. It is concluded that if regional mortality differences are related to health care, factors other than the level of supply are probably involved." (SUMMARY IN FRE).
