Inequalities in health and disease: the case of mortality rates for the city of Johannesburg, South Africa, 1910-1979.
Int J Health Serv. 1982; 12(4):617-36.IJ

Abstract

This article analyzes crude death and infant mortality rates for the different population groups in Johannesburg, the largest city in the Republic of South Africa. The analysis is based on official statistics collected by the Department of Health between 1910 and 1979. Over this period, death rates have declined for white, black, Colored, and Asian citizens. However, the present situation reflects the gross inequalities in the health status of the different population groups in South Africa, a country where disease patterns and access to medical resources are as stratified as any other index of social class.
