Gatrell, Anthony C. and Popay, Jennie and Thomas, Carol (2004) Mapping the determinants of health inequalities in social space: can Bourdieu help us? Health & Place, 10 (3). pp. 245-257. ISSN 1353-8292Full text not available from this repository.
Considerable research effort has been devoted to describing and explaining, at a variety of spatial scales, geographical inequalities in health outcomes within the developed world. Following Bourdieu, we argue that structures of the social world may be revealed in different kinds of â��socialâ�� space. We outline the relational thinking that underlies these ideas. We then â��mapâ��, using correspondence analysis (on which Bourdieu himself drew), the structure of social space according to the differential availability of some forms of capital, across four study areas in north-west England. We use logistic regression analysis to explain variation in psychological morbidity (GHQ-score) and then portray the significant predictors of morbidity using multiple correspondence analysis. The area of residence of the survey respondents is used to associate them with particular locations in these social spaces.
