This chapter analyses gender differences in health and social factors in the period covered by the Level-of-Living Survey (LNU) (1968–2000). It aims to analyse whether there have been any changes in gender differences in musculoskeletal pain and psychological distress during 1968–2000 and, if so, whether there have also been changes in the social factors that contribute to gender differences in the two health outcomes. It investigates whether women's massive entry into the labour market has led to a narrowing or a widening of gender differences in musculoskeletal pain and psychological distress.

Keywords:   gender differences, health, social factors, Level-of-Living Survey, musculoskeletal pain, psychological distress, labour market
