The problem of mortality rate of inhabitants of Łódź according to causes of deaths was discussed in comparison with four big towns of Poland i.e. Warsaw, Poznań, Cracow, and Wroclaw. In the light of this comparison for the period of 196O-1974 the situation in Łód£ is rather unfavourable. One of the main causes of deaths, and namely diseases of circulatory system show the highest dynamics in Łódź. On the other hand, coefficients of deaths caused by neoplasm continue to be higiest despite lower than in other towns growth rate. Mortality due to tuberculosis, which was one of the main causes of deaths in the past, has been reduced to an almost negligible degree. This unfavourable situation of Łódź in ths field of mortality rate as compared with other towns was due not only to deaths caused by neoplasma, and circulatory diseases but also to deaths caused by other factors (e.g. cirrhosis of liver, accidents, pneumonia and others).
