Studies in recent decades show an inverse gradient between mortality and socioeconomic status (SES), even among those near the top of the socioeconomic distribution. They also demonstrate that the health of individuals is associated with the socioeconomic disparities that exist within their geographic region as well as their own socioeconomic circumstances. Thus, within the United States, people in states with greater income disparity tend to have worse health than people in other states.
