Studies of mortality in small areas have generally covered short periods of about 3 years. These snapshots highlight the extent of health inequalities, but do not allow assessment of local trends, fluctuations or unexpected variations in mortality. To overcome this limitation, mortality data spanning a 12-year period (1975-86) are presented here for two north-east towns. Despite comparably severe deprivation in both places, mortality under 65 in the poorest areas of Middlesbrough has remained consistently much higher than in equivalent areas of Sunderland. The implications of this persisting disparity are considered.
