Resumé

The aim was to examine trends in social inequality in poor self-rated health (SRH) among adolescents in Denmark 1991-2014. The analysis included 18 996 11-15-year-old school children from the cross-sectional Health Behaviour in School-aged Children studies in 1991, 2002, 2006, 2010 and 2014. Across the five surveys, the prevalence of poor SRH was 14.2%, remaining almost unchanged from 1991 to 2014. The proportion with poor SRH was 12.2% in high, 14.3% in middle and 17.6% in low occupational social class. This social inequality in poor SRH was persistent during the entire study period, both in terms of absolute and relative social inequality.
