Preventable mortality increased with each material deprivation quintile and varied significantly by material deprivation quintile on average from 2011 to 2015. The rate for those that lived in the most well-off neighbourhoods was more than half (Q1 the least material deprived neighbourhoods; 71.9 per 100,000) that of the most materially deprived neighbourhoods (Q5 most material deprived neighbourhoods; 208.9 per 100,000). This is a rate difference of 137.0 deaths on average from 2011 to 2015.
