Headline: Social differences: health inequalities among older adults
The impact of social differences on health does not disappear with age. Persons aged 55 and over with a tertiary education generally enjoy better health and have better health habits than those with basic education. They are also more likely to have psycho-social resources such as strong social support (46% compared with 31%) or a high level of vitality (64% compared with 41%). These are some of the results from the Federal Statistical Office’s (FSO) latest publication.
