  1. aCauses of death included and their ICD-10 codes are: AIDS/HIV disease (B20-B24, R75), MN colon (C18), MN rectum, anus, anal canal (C19-C21), MN cervix uteri (C53), MN testes (C62), Hodgkin’s disease (C81), Rheumatic heart disease (I00-I09), Hypertension (I10-I13), Heart failure (I50-I51), Cerebrovascular diseases (I60-I69), Peptic ulcer (K25-K27), Renal failure (N17-N19), Conditions originating in the perinatal period (P00-P96), Congenital heart disease (Q20-Q24).
  2. bFor Brussels we analyzed “Brussels Region”.
  3. cFor Lisbon we analyzed “Lisbon Metropolitan Area”.
  4. dThe analysis for London does not include mortality from Conditions originating in the perinatal period and Congenital heart disease because these causes of death were not reported in the mortality data.
  5. eThis second setup for Turin is used in a sensitivity analysis, see discussion.
