Abstract

The level of income related health inequality in Great Britain is calculated using some regression techniques that investigate which socio-democratic factors are important contributors to health differences. A relative deprivation measure is added to the test and it revealed that subjective financial status is a major determinant of ill-health and makes a major contribution to health inequalities.
