This chapter puts health inequalities into the wider context of welfare resources based on the Swedish case. It focuses on analysing, describing, and understanding health inequalities and how they are shaped, recreated, changed, and influenced by social stratification, societal changes, and public policy at the most general level. It discusses in detail the definition and measurement of welfare, health inequalities, and a number of key issues. It includes an overview of the data to be used and some of the more specific research questions. It notes that the field of health inequalities research has expanded considerably over the past twenty-five years or so and most of the questions and analyses are embedded in the field of research.

Keywords:   health inequalities, welfare resources, social stratification, societal changes, public policy
