Seasonal fluctuations in mortality are a persistent phemen, but variations from culture to culture pose fascinating questions. This book investigates whether sociodemographic and socioecomic factors play a role as important for seasonal mortality as they do for mortality in general. Using modern statistical methods, the book shows, for example, that in the United States the fluctuations between winter and summer mortality are smaller the more years someone has spent in school.
