Resumen

VILLALONGA-OLIVES, Ester et al. Analysis of inequalities in mortality in small areas: obstacles to overcome. Gac Sanit [online]. 2013, vol.27, n.4, pp.378-380. ISSN 0213-9111.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.gaceta.2013.01.017.

No analyses have been performed in the Balearic Islands (Spain) to assess health inequalities in mortality in small areas. The objective of this study was to construct a mortality atlas using geocoding of mortality records. During this process, several problems were encountered, which are summarized in this article. These problems were based on the lack of stable small geographical areas, difficulties in obtaining the population for small areas divided by age and sex for the study period, problems with the quality of the cartography, and the poor quality of the mortality records. The methodological problems identified in this process should be considered in future studies.

Palabras clave : Mortality; Balearic Islands; Geocoding; Small areas; Health inequalities.
