Socio-economic inequalities in all-cause mortality in Europe: an exploration of the role of heightened social mobility
Author(s): Audrey M. W. Simons, Daniëlle A. I. Groffen, Hans Bosma
Abstract:

The larger than expected socio-economic inequalities in health in more egalitarian countries might be explained by a heightened social mobility in these countries. Therefore, the aim of this explorative study was to examine the associations between country-level social mobility, income inequality and socio-economic differences in all-cause mortality, using country-level secondary data from 12 European countries. Both income equality and social mobility were found to be associated with larger socio-economic differences in mortality, particularly in women. These findings suggest that social mobility and income equality, beside their shiny side of improving population health, might have a shady side of increasing socio-economic health inequalities.
