Abstract

Although previous research has examined the various correlates of self-rated health, little attention has been paid to how position in the social structure influences this important measure of health. Drawing upon the socialstructure and personality perspective, I examine whether the relationship between socio-economic status (income adequacy and education) and self-rated health is mediated by financial stress, self-esteem, mastery social support, smoking, alcohol consumption and physical activity, using data from the1994 National Population Health Survey. Results show that almost one-thirdof the relationship can be explained by the mediating effect of these variables. Income adequacy and education, however, remain significantly relatedto self-rated health net of these variables. Further research with a broader array of variables related to social position is required to specify themechanisms connecting socio-economic status and perceived health.
