Class, paid employment and family roles : making sense of structural disadvantage, gender and health status.
This paper uses a sample of over 25,000 men and women from the 1985 and 1986 British General Household Survey.
Standardised limiting long-standing illness ratios and multivariate logit analysis confirm that occupational class and paid employment are the most important attributes associated with health status for women and men.
Family roles are important for women; women without children and previously married women have particularly poor health status especially those not in paid employment and living in local authority housing.
