  1. aLogistic regression was fitted and odds ratios (OR) were adjusted for gender, ethnicity, country of residence and residence area. Model 1A included separate indicators for social class at age 26 years and social mobility from age 26 to 46 years. Model 1B included separate indicators for social class at 46 years and social mobility from age 26 to 46 years. Model 2 included nine possible social trajectories from age 26 to age 46 years
