In all industrialized societies health status in adults has been found to vary with social position.
Attempts to explain this are usually grouped under headings of artefact, material, lifestyle and selective mobility of the healthiest.
Such attempts have to date been unsuccessful in fully accounting for this relationship, and whilst they have merit have left unconsidered the effects of the process whereby social stratification occurs.
The present study is a prelude to subsequent studies that will endeavour to distinguish between three separate influences on health-the effects of current social position, the long term effects stemming from one's initial class position, and the effects of the processes governing mobility.
