Abstract

The health of people of NSW is among the best in the world. Over the past 20 years, the chances of dying before we reach 70 years of age have dropped by almost 25 per cent. However, these benefits have not been shared by everyone; in fact, men who live in the poorer parts of NSW now have a similar life expectancy as men who lived in the richer areas of the State 20 years ago.
