Patterns of class inequality in health through the lifespan : class gradients at 15,35 and 55 years in the West of Scotland.
Data confirming the existence of social inequalities in health have continued to accumulate since the Black Report reported class inequalities across a broad range of causes of mortality, with an increasing emphasis on indicators of morbidity and current health status.
Although evidence of continuing inequalities mounts, elucidation of underlying mechanisms generating and maintaining such inequalities has been more elusive, and much of the debate has oscillated from the very broad to the very specific.
In this paper, the class patterning of a range of non-fatal indicators of health are modelled in an attempt to outline first the adequacy of models of linear relationships for this range of measures, and secondly, the extent to which these are generalizable across a series of age/sex subgroups and across different domains of health.
