AQA AS Sociology unit 2 HEALTH AND RESEARCH METHODSWatch
For research methods theres not a lot predicted - apparently questionnaires?
That would be amazing! Would you be able to explain anything about views on the bourgeoisie and proletariat?
In relation to health inequalities the lower classes (proletariat) experience poorer health than the higher classes (bourgeoisie) - why:
> structural / material apprach - due to the inequalities in society lower classes experience poor health e.g poor pay, long working hours, risky jobs = poor diet, less time to exercise etc. LINK TO MARXISM
> cultural / behavioural apprach - due to their cultural and lifestyles they have poor health (basically their own fault) e.g. working class more likely to go to the pub and smoke etc. LINK TO NEW RIGHT
> social selection - health determines social class. e.g. Illsley said fitter do better in jobs. No body wants to promote or hire people who can only work part time due to an illness (despite it being illegal lol) or whod call up sick loads. however arguably - due to material deprivation working class are more likely to have poor health so just endless cycle
Studies: Engels study of factory workers, Marmot review, Black Report etc.
OMG thank you so much!!!!!! That's incredible, why couldn't the teachers give us that?! Good luck for your retake, I'm sure you'll smash it with knowledge like that! xoxoxo
just heard from an inside source, that the predictions are: one essay on interviews; medical profession and how two of the following affect health: class, gender, age, ethnicity
