The Atlas Of Death
This is a very interesting map.
The geographical pattern of mortality in Great Britain over the past quarter century has been mapped for the first time, revealing how each of us is most likely to die depending on where we live. The Grim Reaper’s Road Map: An Atlas of Mortality in Britain shows exactly how people’s deaths are affected by where they live, how much money they have, the type of work they do and their lifestyle.
Dorling studied 14,833,696 death records to produce the maps, which show the standardised mortality ratios of every town and city in Britain from 1981 to 2004. The first map in the atlas is of all deaths that have taken place in Britain over the past 24 years. This is then broken down into nine causes, including all cancers and all deaths related to transport. Those maps are then subdivided into 99 categories.
