Different mortality rates for different socioeconomic groups within a population have been consistently reported throughout the years. In this study, we aim to exploit data from multiple public sources, including highly-detailed cause-of-death data from the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, to explore the mortality gap between the better and worse off in the US during the period 1989-2015, using education as a proxy.
