Hi there I am really stuck on critisising the artefact theory for the health inequalities by gender. I have explained what the approach is but the only critisism that I can find is that it recognizes that are gender differences in morbidity and mortality, but this theory does not provide any explanation for these health differences.

Please could anyone tell me what other critsisms there are or where I can look I would be evre so greatful x

You can criticising it by saying not all stats are artefacts. And by contrasting it with the strength of the social causation and drift explanations.

One Artefact explanation suggested for the differences in Morbidity and Mortality between males and females. Explanations of differences between men and women are often based on self-reports, which involve individuals assessing their own levels of illness. This has led some commentators to suggest that the higher levels of ill- health reported by women reflect their subject beliefs rather than objective reality. However, a study by MacIntyre (1993) found than men were significantly more likely than women to over rate their symptoms in comparison to a clinical observer. As a result, MacIntyre suggests that the real rates of illness for are significantly higher than the official figures indicate.
You may want to include the fact that women are more likely to visit the doctors and report their illness than men. This is because women are more familiar with the doctors' environment as they visit on a regular basis (due to pregnancy, Menstruation, contraception etc). Men simply 'deal' with their symptoms as visiting the doctors may be dangerous to their 'masculinity'.

I would really suggest that you get the haralambos book.
