Social Inequality in Cancer Survival in Canada
Auteurs : Grignon M. (McMaster University Hamilton, Ontario, Canada)
Discutant : Or Z. (Irdes)

However, the evidence is based mostly on neighbourhood or area rather than on individual level observations; moreover, it is quite dated or refers to specific cancer sites.
