They are risk factors found in one's living and working conditions (such as the distribution of income, wealth, influence, and power), rather than individual factors (such as behavioural risk factors or genetics) that influence the risk for a disease, or vulnerability to disease or injury. According to some viewpoints, these distributions of social determinants are shaped by public policies that reflect the influence of prevailing political ideologies of those governing a jurisdiction. ... In 2003, the World Health Organization (WHO) Europe suggested that the social determinants of health included: (1) Social gradients (life expectancy is shorter and disease is more common further down the social ladder). (2) Stress (including stress in the workplace). (3) Early childhood development. (4) Social exclusion. (5) Unemployment. (6) Social support networks. (7) Addiction. (8) Availability of healthy food. (9) Availability of healthy transportation." [Social determinants of health. Wikipedia] The hub-and-spoke diagram example "Social determinants of health" was created using the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software extended with the Circle-Spoke Diagrams solution from the area "What is a Diagram" of ConceptDraw Solution Park.
