Increasing prevalence of emotional symptoms in higher socioeconomic strata. Trend study among Danish schoolchildren 1991-2014

Share
This paper examines social inequality in emotional symptoms in comparable and representative populations of 11-15-year-olds over a 23 year period from 1991 to 2014 in Denmark. The study applied the Health Behaviour in School-aged Children Symptom Check List to measure frequency of emotional symptoms. The data on occupational social class stem from students’ reports about their parents’ occupation.

There was an increasing prevalence of emotional symptoms in higher and middle occupational social classes and no change in the prevalence of emotional symptoms in the low occupational social class. This resulted in a diminishing social inequality in emotional symptoms, both in terms of absolute and relative social inequality.
