  1. Social patterning of medical mortality in youth and early adulthood.

    Article - En anglais

    It has been suggested that socio-economic gradients in health reduce or disappear during youth, to be re-created during early adulthood through a process of health-related social mobility.

    The present analysis tests this hypothesis in relation to'medical mortality'using a data set which is free of numerator-denominator bias.

    The sample consists of the appropriate age groups in the OPCS Longitudinal Study ; 62,647 males and 59,644 females aged 0-14 at the 1971 census. « Medical mortality » during 1971-1985, calculated as standardised mortality ratios, is analysed by parental social class, housing tenure and car access in 1971. « Medical mortality » during 1981-1985 is analysed by own social class in 1981.
