To measure inequalities, we can use SES measures and health measures. SES measures include education, income and occupation. Education affects behaviour and life style choices, whereas income measures access to material goods and occupation measures education and benefits the individual has access to (Fawcett, 2005). Fawcett (2005) suggests that income inequalities significantly affect lower SES groups, whereas education affects inequality in higher SES groups.
