- KurzbeschreibungSocial inequalities in health are substantial <br>throughout Europe. It is widely acknowledged <br>that welfare states are important determinants of <br>health in European countries as they mediate the <br>extent and impact of socio-economic position on <br>health. The concept of welfare state regimes has <br>therefore been used to analyze cross-national <br>differences in population health. The present book <br>adds to this literature with recent data from the <br>European Social Survey, covering up to 80 000 people <br>in 25 countries. It thereby constitutes one of the <br>most extensive comparative studies of health <br>inequalities ever performed. It demonstrates that <br>the overall level and the magnitude of self-<br>perceived health inequalities according to people s <br>educational attainment, occupational status and <br>income level are not always randomly distributed <br>between welfare state regimes. One of the key <br>findings is that although the egalitarian <br>Scandinavian welfare regime scores well on overall <br>health, it does not exhibit the smallest <br>inequalities.
