Abstract

Previous research has shown that levels of mortality and premature mortality
are considerably higher in the city of Glasgow when compared with the
similarly deprived UK cities of Liverpool and Manchester.

A number of hypotheses have been advanced to explain the ‘excess’ mortality
(after taking deprivation into account) observed in Glasgow. One of these is
that post-war urban change was greater in Glasgow (relative to Liverpool and
Manchester) and this may, through particular influences, account for some of
the ‘excess’ levels of poor health seen in the Scottish city. This report
investigates the extent to which the first part of this hypothesis was plausible.
