Abstract The paper investigates mortality and morbidity in the 1990s in Yorkshire and the Humber. Mortality for districts and wards is computed and the inequality between areas estimated. The results show that although mortality decreased between 1990--92 and 1996-98, only a few districts and wards improved relative to England and Wales. Inequalities between wards sorted by deprivation quintiles increased over the period. By contrast, self-reported morbidity increased between 1991 and 2001, but inequalities decreased. The paper discusses interpretations of these trends and the spatial patterns for men and women and for children, adults and the retired.
