ABSTRACT
Socioeconomic inequalities in health are well established but few studies have used a comprehensive approach and examined these inequalities by several socioeconomic indicators simultaneously. The main objective of this study is to examine socioeconomic inequalities in self rated health by indicators ranging from childhood socioeconomic environment to adult socioeconomic status and material resources. The data derived from the Helsinki Health Study baseline surveys in 2000-2002. Respondents to postal surveys were middle aged employees of the City of Helsinki. Associations between seven socioeconomic indicators and self rated health were examined by fitting a series of logistic regression models.
