  1. Socioeconomic factors, health behaviors, and mortality : Results from a nationally representative prospective study of US adults.

    Article - En anglais

    Context. - A prominent hypothesis regarding social inequalities in mortality is that the elevated risk among the socioeconomically disadvantaged is largely due to the higher prevalence of health risk behaviors among those with lower levels of education and income.

    Objective

    - To investigate the degree to which 4 behavioral risk factors (cigarette smoking, alcohol drinking, sedentary lifestyle, and relative body weight) explain the observed association between socioeconomic characteristics and all-cause mortality.

    Results

    When health risk behaviors were considered, the risk of dying was still significantly elevated for the lowest-income group (hazard rate ratio, 2.77 ; 95% Cl, 1.74-4. (...)
