Inégalités sociales de santé : score et indexation, revue systématique de la littérature de 2000 à 2017

Abstract : The problem of social inequalities in health is today one of the major public health axes for the development of new health and care policies. The repercussions of social inequalities and precariousness on health can no longer be demonstrated. The objective of this work is to study how these social inequalities are now addressed in major epidemiological studies. An article selection based on a literature review shows two categories of social health factors ; the so-called « structural » factors (employment, income, education) and « intermediaries »(social ties, psycho-social factors). The study of the ISS according to structural factors (level of education, employment and income) is done by geographical unit, the data come from regional or national statistical institutes. However, individual indicators (social interactions, housing characteristics, social cohesion, psychosocial factors) are most often favored by group studies. The importance of these immaterial variables, defined empirically, explains the discomfort to make consensus on the characterization of the ISS. The interest of the score EPICES resort by its propensity to make the link between these different components, in a standardized and validated way.
