Do the rich live longer than the poor? To what extent do class and occupational positions affect one's health? How does social capital relate to illness? In what ways does social structure influence health literacy? How about other variables, such as the place of residence, house ownership, education, population density, and marriage status?

They present provocative conclusions.
