Ross, Catherine E.; Mirowsky, John – Journal of Health and Social Behavior, 2009
Living in a threatening, noxious, and dangerous neighborhood may produce anxiety, anger, and depression because it is subjectively alienating.

These perceptions in turn lead to anxious and angry…

Mirowsky, John; Ross, Catherine E. – Journal of Health and Social Behavior, 2007
Employees with greater control over their own activities have better health. People who are employed give up some control over their own activities for pay, yet employment is associated with better health. Perhaps paid jobs provide resources for productive self-expression that make up for the loss of autonomy. We find that paid employment is…

Education forms a unique dimension of social status with qualities that make it especially important to health.

It precedes the other achieved…
