In Reply We thank Dr Goldberg for commenting on our article1 and for expressing the opinion that social determinants of health are important in shaping health outcomes. We agree and further note that, in addition to social determinants, broader contextual determinants (eg, environmental and other exposures) are important contributors to health outcomes.2 These were accounted for in our analyses.1
