Many social factors and social phenomena and their influence on health are now of interest for epidemiological research and also for health policy.
One social phenomenon of interest is mobility in the social structure of society.
In this prospective study of a sample of 50-year-old men born in 1913 in Gothenburg, Sweden, it was possible to study intergenerational social mobility and different measures of ill-health, like health complaints, incidence of myocardial infarction and mortality.
The results of the study indicate that individuals who find themselves in a lower social group than that of their father at the age of 50 exhibit a somewhat poorer subjective state of health and report more complaints and symptoms at the age of 60.
