One of the many theories put forward to explain the ‘excess’ mortality in Scotland’s largest city is that there may be important differences in the spatial patterning of deprivation between Glasgow and other comparable cities, Liverpool and Manchester.

In other words, the way in which deprived and affluent areas are distributed may be different in Glasgow than in Liverpool and Manchester, and may, through particular causal pathways, adversely affect the health of Glasgow’s population. The study summarised in this paper sought to explore whether or not this may be the case.
