BCHS 2598 - SOCIAL INEQUALITIES IN HEALTH

This course critically evaluates social science and epidemiological theory and research on social inequalities in health. A consistently important finding is the positive gradient between socioeconomic position and health. Is this gradient socially patterned? This question is examined by drawing on research from U.S., Other industrialized countries, and the third world. This course devotes special attention to conceptual and measurement issues, the social context of health, hierarchical linear modeling or multilevel analysis, and ecological and life course perspectives.
