Women with high education live longer than women with lower education, and several countries are trying to do something about this. Norway is one of the countries in a new study that do not succeed in reducing the differences.
A recent European survey published in the research journal British Medical Journal (BMJ) shows that while other countries have reduced the differences, the difference between educational groups is increasing in the two countries: Norway and Finland. The mortality rate of highly educated Norwegian women was and still is at the same level as women in other countries. But Norwegian with little education can’t keep ut woman in other countries, who have better health and lower mortality rates.
