Explaining the Link between Socioeconomic Status and Health
AbstractThe Black Report, published in Britain in 1980, confirmed the basic observation, made hundred years ago, that the socio-economic position of indivfiduals is inversely associated with their health. The purpose of this paper is to describe the various pathways which have been advanced to explain the links between SES and health and the way they have evolved since publication of the Black Report.
