Health consequences of income loss and lower education

The overarching aim of these projects are to increase our knowledge about:

1) the health consequences of income loss in Sweden, as well as the economic burden at the national level 

2) educational inequalities in death coding practices in Sweden and disease history prior to death.  

Attention is also paid to exploring how different levels of education and educational mobility in mid-life may affect health.
