  1. Origins of health inequalities in a national population sample.

    Article - En anglais

    Explanations for social inequalities in health are often explored but remain largely unresolved.

    To elucidate the origins of health inequalities, we investigated the extent to which adult disease risk factors vary systematically according to social position over three decades of early life.

    We used the 1958 birth cohort (all children born in England, Scotland, and Wales on March 3-9,1958) with data up to age 33 years from parents, teachers, doctors, and cohort members (n=11 407 for age 33 interview). ... Interpretation of findings An individual's chance of encountering multiple adverse health risks throughout life is influenced powerfully by social position.

    Social trends in adult-disease risk factors do not emerge exclusively in mid-life, but accumulate over decades.

    Investment in educational and emotional development is needed in all social groups to strengthen prevention strategies relating to health behaviour, work-place environment, and income inequality.
