Relationship between socioeconomic status and stroke outcomes

Takeaway

  • Particularly in those with moderate-to-severe stroke, neighborhood socioeconomic status (nSES) is associated with 90-day post-stroke outcomes.

Why this matters

    Few studies have evaluated the relationship between nSES and/or stroke severity and disability or non-mortality outcomes. Results of this study advocate for policy initiatives that address post-stroke health and quality of life considerations in areas of low nSES.
