Social and Psychosocial Determinants of Self-Rated Health in Central and Eastern Europe

by

Social and Psychosocial Determinants of Self-Rated Health in Central and Eastern Europe Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Life expectancy in countries of Central and Eastern Europe is substantially shorter than in Western Europe, and a similar divide exists in self-rated health. This exhaustive study of populations in seven Central and European countries - Russia, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Poland, Czech Republic and Hungary - examines the social and psychosocial determinants of this divide. Practitioners and graduate students of public health and social psychology will find this an invaluable resource.

Book News Annotation:

Contributing to the study of why health is significantly worse in central and eastern Europe, including the former Soviet Union than in western Europe, Pikhart (U. College London) pursues theories that psychosocial factors play an important role. Specifically he looks at the socioeconomic gradient in self-rated health, and on the effects of psychosocial factors on health status. Among the socioeconomic factors he examined are education, material deprivation, and material inequality. The psychosocial factors include working conditions, perceived control over life and health, social support at home, and marital status. The study was his doctoral dissertation for University College London.
