Abstract

Galea and Ahern examined the ecological association between educational distribution and a range of population health outcomes. In one of their findings, Galea and Ahern reported that higher levels of educational inequality within New York City neighborhoods were associated with lower percentages of low birthweight. The finding contradicts the more frequently found association between higher levels of income-related inequality and unfavorable population health outcomes. Is neighborhood educational inequality protective of population health?
