Socioeconomic inequalities and their determinants have been extensively studied and found profound effects in health and health behaviors of the individuals with lower socioeconomic status. However, causal direction of socioeconomic inequalities and its effect in the individuals is still unclear. Therefore, this study will investigate the effect of socioeconomic inequalities in health status and health behaviors of children.
This thesis will use data the Longitudinal Study of Australian Children using a face-to-face interview following the structured questionnaire. The descriptive (frequency, percentage, mean, median, and standard deviation) and inferential statistics (regression model) will be used.
The findings of this study will provide a useful insight into socioeconomic inequalities and their consequences from the early stages of life and will promote a healthy lifestyle in children.
