Where a person falls within a society’s social stratification is directly related to that person’s health. This association has been well-proven on a macro level, but few researchers have checked to see whether the pattern continues on smaller scales. Therefore, CHAS Fellow Kate Cagney and colleagues looked at the social positions of older adults within their neighborhoods. Specifically, they examined the income and social reputation of these individuals and ultimately found that higher relative rankings in both of these areas were associated with fewer depressive symptoms. This evidence suggests that the aforementioned association between social position and health remains true on smaller levels of social organization.
