The article presents a study conducted on examining whether income and education were predictors of return to work after a first stroke among persons aged 40-59. It mentions that first stroke survivals, who were discharged from a hospital in 1996-2000 and who had received income from work during the year prior to the stroke were sampled from the Swedish national register of in-patient care. It reports that higher income and education were associated with higher probability of returning to work.
