Abstract

Yajing Zhu presents the results of a life-course study, tracing 17,000 individuals from birth and over the course of 50 years. She identifies four socio-economic circumstances that affected them as children and how they continued influencing them as adults. The study shows that financial difficulty and material hardship have a persistent impact on poorer health in mid age.
