This chapter addresses relative deprivation as a possible mechanism behind the income-health relationship on the individual level. It explains that the analyses review the literature and suggest two different ways of assessing relative deprivation empirically: first through a membership group definition, and second, by self-rated deprivation (SRD) measured by specific consumption items. It explains that in both cases, the analyses look at men and women separately. It discusses the clear gender differences in the effect of income on health, as well as the differences in the role played by relative deprivation.

Keywords:   relative deprivation, income, membership group definition, self-rated deprivation, income differences, gender differences
