Explain how sociologists view the relationship between the key social variables of a class, gender, race and health outcomes

From a sociological viewpoint, the analysis of health outcomes can be understood through a variety of social variables. Throughout this semester, we have covered several of these, including race, gender, and class in society. For sociologists, these variables can be correlated very strongly with longevity rates, propensities for certain types of disease, and overall rates of mortality. In this final essay, you will describe the key relationship between these social variables and health outcomes and also engage in your own research in which you will come up with one meaningful example of a health issue that is impacted by these variables. This paper will conclude with a discussion on how government interventions (organizations and agencies) are improving health outcomes.
