Reports on mortality rates and causes of death in a cohort of women who used homeless shelters in Toronto. Compares results with those of other published studies of homeless women and with data for women in the general population. Concludes that excess mortality is far greater among homeless women under age 45 years than among older homeless women, and that mortality rates among younger homeless women often approach or equal those of younger homeless men. Emphasizes that efforts to reduce deaths of homeless women should focus on those under age 45.
