The Grim Reaper's Road Map

An atlas of mortality in Britain based on data from 1981 to 2003, this new study explores causes of death across the UK, including a description of the cause of death, a map and cartogram showing the spatial distribution of that cause, a commentary on the pattern observed and the reason for it.


You can download sample chapters from the reading room to view some of the maps and graphics used in the book.

Good map, but I don't think it shows any Grim Reaper involvement whatsoever as there is no 'sudden death' category. :P
