Adolescence and health inequalities : extensions to Macintyre and West.
The paper investigates class based health inequalities in mid to late adolescence.
Health status is assessed by means of three subjective self-report measures; evaluation of general health, psychological well-being and disability/long-standing illness.
Using six measures of social class (three occupationally and three non-occupationally based) which derive from parental characteristics, no evidence for consistent class based differentials in health amongst adolescents is found.
However, it is not concluded that class based health inequalities are absent at this stage of the life cycle.
