Thema: Tagung

Socioeconomic inequalities in mortality are present in all European countries, but their magnitude and development over time is highly variable.

In a series of on-going comparative studies we exploit these variations to identify the macro- and micro-level determinants of these mortality inequalities.

In the presentation the speaker will summarize the results of these studies, and relate his findings to current insights into the explanation of health inequalities in modern welfare states.
