The better your status, the better your health. In many countries people have come to believe that socioeconomic status (SES) has been linked with a person’s health. This has been supported with data from the West Jutland Cohort Study which aims at SES affecting the emotional aspect of one’s life. Gallo and Matthew, sociologist who ran the study, hypothesized that a low SES status’s leads to stress, which increases negativity, therefore lessening one’s ability to deal with stress. In order to run this study they had 3,054 14-15 year olds in west Jutland answer a questionnaire.
