Abstract [en]

In the late 19th century the northernmost parts of Sweden exhibited excessive mortality among children (ages 1-15). This paper explores the differences in mortality patterns and causes of death among children in selected areas of Norrbotten, the northernmost province and suggests that extreme overcrowding, poor housing and lifestyle factors may have contributed to the high mortality among children in this area.
