Bildungsbezogene Ungleichheit in der Gesundheit Älterer: Eine international vergleichende Analyse

  • Hendrik Jürges

Auszug

Eine Vielzahl von Studien dokumentiert einen starken Zusammenhang zwischen dem sozio-ökonomischen Status und der Gesundheit: besser gebildete Personen sind gesünder als weniger gebildete, Personen mit einem hohen Einkommen sind gesünder als solche mit einem niedrigen Einkommen, Erwerbstätige am oberen Ende der Hierarchie sind gesünder als solche am unteren Ende und reiche Personen sind gesünder als Arme. Der Zusammenhang zwischen sozio-ökonomischem Status und Gesundheit ist so universell, dass häufig einfach von „dem“ Gradienten gesprochen wird (Deaton, 2003).
