  1. Inequality in health : some theoretical and empirical problems.

    Article - En anglais

    The present paper discusses the following problem; what is the best theoretical understanding of the social class distribution of health and mortality?

    The discussion identifies some theoretical problems.

    Some of these have to do with the importance of social causation of health on the one hand and health-related social mobility on the other.

    Each one of these two explanations has its own problems, but they are not mutually exclusive.
