    Paul J Boyle
    Longitudinal Studies Centre Scotland, University of St Andrews, St Andrews, Scotland, United Kingdom

    School of Geography and Geosciences, University of St Andrews, St Andrews, Scotland KY16 9ST, UK
    Soc Sci Med 68:1835-42. 2009
    ..These results show that a reduction in inequalities is not a necessary consequence if the health of 'mobile' people falls between that of those they left and those they joined and this is particularly the case for deprivation mobility...
