Rethinking the health selection explanation for health inequalities.
As one of several explanations for class differentials in health, health selection has received remarkably little systematic attention in the inequalities debate.
It is widely regarded as having (at best) a very minor role in the production of inequalities, and a theoretical debt to social Darwinism.
This paper examines the validity of those assumptions in terms of the evidence which has emerged since the publication of the « Black Report ».
