Improving job strain might reduce inequalities in cardiovascular disease mortality in European men
Unfavorable psychosocial working conditions can lead to cardiovascular disease (CVD) mortality. Lower-occupational groups typically experience unfavorable psychosocial working conditions as compared to higher-occupational groups. This study investigates:
- the extent to which CVD mortality inequalities might be reduced if psychosocial working conditions for manual workers are raised to the level experienced by non-manual workers;
- what would occur if psychosocial working conditions among manual and non-manual workers are raised to better levels as observed in the ‘ideal’ region (best practice scenario).
