Alkohol og sosial ulikhet

Sammendrag

Prosjektnr. 271 Det er store helseulikheter etter sosioøkonomisk status, så vel i Norge som internasjonalt. I dette prosjektet skal (A) sammenhengen mellom utdanningsnivå og drikkemønsteret i Norge studeres nærmere. I tillegg skal en studere (B) sammenhengen mellom utdanningsnivå og alkoholrelatert dødelighet, og (C) sammenhengen mellom utdanningsnivå og sykelighet undersøkes.

Tittel

Alcohol and social inequality

Sammendrag

There are strong correlations between health inequalities and socioeconomic status, both in Norway and internationally. Lifestyle (including drinking and smoking) is introduced as a likely explanatory ingredient. According to several studies, the less privileged are more likely to develop harmful drinking patterns (although they drink less often, they drink significantly more per drinking episode) than more privileged groups in society. In this project we use cross-sectional data from a national survey conducted during the summer of 2012 to examine (A) the relationship between educational levels and drinking patterns in Norway. There will be a study (B) of the relationship between education and alcohol-related mortality; and (C) of the relationship between education and morbidity. We will be using data from the Cause of Death Register and the Norwegian Patient Register. An important question we will be asking is whether the correlations have changed over time.
