An example might be examining perceived differences in health status linked to household income. Those in the lowest quintile of incomes tend to have a more negative view of their health (40 per cent reporting their health is not good), as opposed to those in the highest quintile, where only 15 per cent report their health is not good (Graham 2007). This reflects that those in low income groups tend to have poorer health. Looking at health in relation to social hierarchies suggests that it is those from socially disadvantaged groups – whether as a result of finance or position in society, for example, ethnic groups – who are more likely to have poor health than those from advantaged groups.
