    At 33 years of age, 12% of men and women reported poor health.

    SES at birth and at 16,23, and 33 years of age was significaraly associated with poor health : all ages except 16 years in men made an additional contribution to the prediction of poor health.

    No Iarge differences in effect sizes emerged, suggesting that timing was not a major factor, Odds of poor health increased by 15% (men) and 18% (women) with a 1-unit increase in the lifetime SES score, Strong effects of lifetime SES peraisted after adjustment for educational level.


    SES from birth to 33 years of age had a cumalative effect on poor bealth in early adulathood.

    This highlights the importance of charation of exposure to socioecixiomic conditions for adult bealth.
