  1. Health and poverty : past, present and prospects for the future.

    Article - En anglais

    Periodically the results of class comparisons in mortality rates have been reported.

    These reports have permitted comparisons since the earlier part of this century to the present period.

    The data thus available enables us to make some tentative predictions about the likely magnitude of class inequalities in mortality in the future.

    We consequently argue that: -the concept of class should be abandoned in favour of a more direct measure of economic inequality which emphasises those living in poverty.
