The Intersection of Residence, Community Vulnerability, and Premature Mortality

Michael Smith, Kate Beatty, Nathan Hale

Abstract

Purpose

Rural communities often experience higher rates of mortality than their urban counterparts, with gaps widening in the foreseeable future. However, the underlying level of socioeconomic vulnerability (area deprivation) among rural communities can vary widely. This study examines rural‐urban differences in mortality‐related outcomes within comparable levels of deprivation.
