The Influence of The Structural Factor of Socio-Economic class on Health “Social class or socioeconomic status is the strongest predictor of health, disease causation and longevity in medical sociology” (Giddens & Sutton 2009 pg 407). This essay aims to explore the influence of the structural factor of socio economic class on health. It will begin with the previously used model known as The Registrar Generals Classification System (Giddens 2009) and then today’s current model known as The Socioeconomic Classification System (Giddens 2009). It will discuss how social class shapes our lives as well as our, environment, educational needs, living and working conditions which all contribute to health (Graham 2007). It will touch on sociological theories and key reports such as The Black Report (1980), The Health Divide (1987), The Acheson Report (1998) and The Marmot Report (2010) these will explain the impact of what does influence health and why.

Several attributes help define this term, such as community ownership, cross disciplinary patience, cultural sensitivity, empowerment, health promotion and disease prevention (Baisch, 2009). One definition that carries the theme of community ownership is provided by the Institute of Medicine (2003), which defines community health as a place where people provide leadership in assessing their own resources and need, where public health and social infrastructure and polices support health and where essential public health services, including quality health care (Baisch, 2009). Community ownership means that community members own and direct the activities that constitute their definition of health for their community, and this defines the needed professional partners for problem-solving in the community, such as epidemiologists, economists, social workers, therapists, physicians, and nurses (Baisch, 2009). Another definition of community health that has the theme of cross- disciplinary patience and cultural sensitivity is provided by Kim-Godwin, Clarke, and Barton (2001), which defines this as the desire and effort to develop health programs and services in a manner that respects the cultural diversity of populations within the community. Cross-disciplinary patience calls for a collaboration that overcomes the differences of race, class, and age (Kim-Godwin et al., 2001).
