House, James S. 2001. "Relating Social Inequalities in Health and Income." Journal of Health Politics Policy and Law, 26(3): 523-532.

The potential impact of levels of economic inequality on the health of populations, and on that of their individual members, has recently become a hot topic in the broader field of social inequalities or disparities in health.
