We examine the evolution of mortality and mortality inequality among the 77 Czech districts ranked by a new poverty index, from 1994 to 2016. The country experienced dramatic improvements in mortality for all age categories and both genders, but with very little variation in inequality. Mortality inequality has remained substantially stable increasing only for females aged 20 to 64.

Abstract

We examine the evolution of mortality and mortality inequality among the 77 Czech districts ranked by a new poverty index, from 1994 to 2016. The country experienced dramatic improvements in mortality for all age categories and both genders, but with very little variation in inequality. Mortality inequality has remained substantially stable increasing only for females aged 20 to 64.
