- International studies find socioeconomic status (SES) to be predictive of functional impairment after stroke.1,2
- Lower socioeconomic status (LSE) is associated with increased severity of stroke onset, higher incidence of risk factors, and worse outcomes.3
- We sought to confirm the predictive significance of SES on acute ischemic stroke patient outcomes at a large urban, U.S. stroke center.
