Abstract

Housing tenure and car access predict longevity and health in many European countries. It is usually assumed that they do so only because they are markers of other material determinants of health. However, in a previous paper we showed that both variables were still significantly associated with several health outcomes after controls for age, sex, and income. [1] Here we replicate and extend that analysis in another sample, examining whether observed relations between tenure or car access and health remain after controlling for alternative measures of material assets (social class and income), and, following suggestions that socioeconomic gradients in health may differ between men and women, [2] whether there are interactions with gender.
