Social Class and Obesity

The Great British Class Survey (GBCS) has escaped from its sociological host and has established a foothold in epidemiology. Be afraid, be very afraid. 

You can read my sceptical thoughts  here on an article published at the weekend in BMJ Open  in which the author attempts to use GBCS data to illuminate the  link between social class and obesity.  I must say that their response policy is a model of how science should operate. My response was up and linked to the article I was commenting on within 24 hours of being submitted.
