Abstract:

"Population Health in America delves into the description and explanation of the country's most important health and longevity trends and disparities. Co-authors Robert Hummer and Erin Hamilton provide a historical portrait of population health; illustrate geographic differences in population health across states and counties; and describe disparities in population health by socioeconomic status, gender, sexual orientation and gender identity, race/ethnicity, and immigrant status. Beyond description, Hummer and Hamilton also provide sociologically-based explanations for such trends and disparities. The book closes with a discussion of policy directions that have the potential to address the fundamental causes of U.S. population health trends and disparities"--Provided by publisher.
