  1. Social mobility and health related behaviours in young people.

    Article - En anglais

    Study objective-To assess the influences related to social mobility, particularly health related behaviours, as one potential explanation for the social class variation in health among adults.

    Health related behaviours in an upwardly or downwardly mobile group were compared with a stable group from the same social class of origin by calculating relative risks (RR).

    RRs were assessed by calculating age and sex adjusted rate ratios approximating a Mantel-Haenszel estimate.

    In logistic regression analyses the independent effects of the social class of origin and the achieved social position were investigated. (...)
