The influence of income, education, and work status on women's well being






Women's Health Issues 11(3): 160-172

The influence of income, education, and work status on women's well being

This article, based on data from the Commonwealth Fund 1998 Survey of Women's Health, examines the relationship between socioeconomic status (SES) and women's health. Women living in poverty are less likely than their higher-income counterparts to have health insurance and use preventive services, and more likely to have access problems, suffer from chronic illnesses, and report low overall health scores. Women with low educational attainment are also less likely to have health insurance and to use preventive services, and more likely to report poorer health status than women with a college education. We conclude with implications for public policy.
