Socioeconomic inequalities in health

People in lower socio-economic groups are, in general, less healthy than people in higher groups. The size of the inequalities varies by the health indicator used. E.g. for indicators that relate to a biomedical concept of health, such as suffering from a chronic condition, inequalities seem to be smaller than for indicators representing a broader view on health, such as self-perceived health. Which indicators should guide health policy?
