  1. Fulltext. Explaining educational differences in mortality : The role of behavioral and material factors.

    Article - En anglais

    Fulltext.

    Objectives

    This study examined the role of behavioral and material factors in explaining educational differences in all-cause mortality, taking into account the overlap between both types of factors.

    Methods

    Prospective data were used on 15 451 participants in a Dutch longitudinal study.

    Relative hazards of all-cause mortality by educational level were calculated before and after adjustment for behavioral factors (alcohol intake, smoking, body mass index, physical activity, dietary habits) and material factors (financial problems, neighborhood conditions, housing conditions, crowding, employment status, a proxy of income).

    Results

    Mortality was higher in lower educational groups.

    Four behavioral factors (alcohol, smoking, body mass index, physical activity) and 3 material factors (financial problems, employment status, income proxy) explained part of the educational differences in mortality.

    With the overlap between both types of factors accounted for, material factors were more important than behavioral factors in explaining mortality differences by educational level.

    Conclusions

    The association between educational level and mortality can be largely explained by material factors.

    Thus, improving the material situation of people might substantially reduce educational differences in mortality.
