ABSTRACT
This article discusses the role of social structure and individual behavior as determinants of health status. Several of the causal effects depicted in the schematic representation of causal pathways to health status are of interest to social epidemiologists, including the effect of some aspect of social structure and the partitioning of this total effect into the portion of the effect mediated by specific health behaviors and the part that is not. A total effect for a particular aspect of social structure is simply some contrast in the health outcome distributions achieved under one specific social policy regime compared to that achieved under another.
