In this paper, the objectives, design, data-collection procedures and enrolment rates of the Longitudinal Study on Socio-Economic Health Differences (LS-SEHD) are described.
This study started in 1991, and is the first large-scale longitudinal study of the explanation of socio-economic inequalities in health in the Netherlands.
The LS-SEHD aims at making a quantitative assessment of the contribution of different mechanisms and factors to the explanation of socio-economic inequalities in health.
It is based on a research model incorporating both « selection » and « causation » mechanisms, and a wide range of specific factors possibly involved in these mechanisms: health-related life-style factors, structural/environmental factors, psychosocial stress-related factors, childhood environment, cultural factors, psychological factors, and health in childhood.
