Swiss Health Survey 2017: Social inequality and physical health / Health of migrant population

91% of people with a tertiary diploma say that their state of health is good or very good. Among persons with no post-compulsory education, however, this is the case for only 66%. People of lower social status are more greatly affected by the risk factors for cardio-vascular diseases, osteoarthritis and back pain than those of a higher social status. These differences are reproduced partly in the population with a migration background, in particular to the disadvantage of the first generation from South West, Eastern and South East Europe.
