Sami mortality shows great fluctuations during the period 1776-1815, almost always peaking at higher rates than in the rest of Sweden. The non-Sami group had lower mortality rates compared to both Sweden as a whole and the Sami in the parish. Between 1856 and 1895 the non-Sami reduction of mortality was very small, while the Sami experienced an improved development. Significant differences in age-specific mortality appear when the South and North Sami are compared, where the South Sami had far lower child mortality rates.
