Abstract: Socioeconomic Status and its Impact on Child Health

This research aims to investigate the correlation between socioeconomic status and child health through a literature review. The literature review explores the determinants of health, and how inequalities in these determinants create disparities in child health among populations. Using the information found in the literature review, health data from Rochester, New York is applied to achieve a more local and small-scale context. Photos from different areas around Rochester are also used to visibly display the disparities and assets in the community. This topic is relevant on a large scale because this problem does not just affect residents of Rochester. Health disparities created by socioeconomic status can be found in everywhere in the United States.
