A new poll by NPR, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and Harvard's T.H. Chan School of Public Health finds, not surprisingly, a very clear line between how the poor and the affluent view some of the determinants of their health. People earning less than $25,000 a year are much more likely to cite the conditions of their neighborhood, housing and workplaces as the causes of ill health than people earning $75,000 or more annually.

People who earn less than $50,000 annually are more than twice as likely as those earning more than that to believe they don't have much control over their health. And the poor are among those likely to say they are very concerned about their future health.

Here is NPR's story on the results of the survey.
