Figure 2.6.9: Potentially avoidable deaths in quintiles Q1 and Q5
Age standardized rate per 100,000 population (age 0–75), Middlesex-London and Ontario, 2003–04 to 2011–12 annual average
Generally, the inequalities between Q1 and Q5 persisted for both Middlesex-London and Ontario for all years. There was a significant difference in 2009–10 between Middlesex-London and Ontario based on the absolute rate differences. These inequalities persist despite small but steady improvements in overall avoidable mortality in the population during this same time period.
