From Sasson:

“In this talk I propose a demographic framework for conceptualizing the burden of bereavement with respect to intensity and predictability. Applying this framework to Swedish population register data reveals inequalities in bereavement by education and income among the 1973 birth cohort, including differences in cumulative exposure to deaths of family members and in the risk of losing parents, siblings, cousins, and children early in life.”
