|Abstract:||This study measures the effects of various social conditions on individuals' physical and mental health. For the survey, respondents provided information on a multitude of aspects of their daily lives, including economic obligations (such as child care, medical care, food, clothing, and bills) and health and well-being (amount of exercise, vital statistics such as height and weight, whether they smoked, and whether they had difficulty with daily activities like climbing stairs, kneeling, carrying objects that weigh less than ten pounds, seeing, hearing, and walking). In addition, respondents described their work and employment status, activities they performed, how they felt about what they did, and the kind of relationship they had with their supervisors. Respondents also answered questions related to household and family, such as how many people lived in the household, what kind of child care they used, and how much they participated in household activities like cooking, shopping, laundry, repairs, and bill-paying. Demographic information on respondents includes marital status, education, birth year, race, religion, and income.|
