Abstract

BackgroundTo examine the combined effects of education level and perceived social class on self-rated health and life satisfaction in South Korea.

MethodsWe used data drawn from the 8 to 15th wave of the Korean Labor and Income Panel Study KLIPS. Using wave 8 at baseline, data included 11,175 individuals. We performed a longitudinal analysis at baseline estimating the prevalence of self-rated health and life satisfaction among individuals by education level high, middle, and low education level and perceived social class high, middle, and low social class.

ResultsFor self-rated health, odds ratio OR of individuals with low education and low perceived social class was 0.604 times lower 95 % CI: 0.555–0.656 and the OR of individuals with low education and middle perceived social class was 0.853 time lower 95 % CI: 0.790–0.922 when compared to individuals with high education and high perceived social class. For life satisfaction, OR of individuals with low education and low perceived social class was 0.068 times lower 95 % CI: 0.063–0.074 and the OR of individuals with middle education and middle perceived social class was 0.235 time lower 95 % CI: 0.221–0.251 compared to individuals with high education and high perceived social class.
