  1. The effect of socioeconomic status on bone density in a male Caucasian population.

    Article - En anglais

    We have examined the effect of socioeconomic status (SES) on bone density (BMD) in 201 males, aged 20-60 years.

    Males of lower SES (groups 4-6 vs. 1-3) from the total sample had significantly higher BMD (p<0.05) at L2-4 and femoral neck.

    The difference was small but was not explained by differences in age, weight, calcium intake, family history, activity, or smoking. 45% of SES 4-6 males were involved in manual labor compared with 11% of those in SES 1-3, however, this also did not appear to account for the difference.
