SOCIO-ECONOMIC STATUS AND HEALTH: EVIDENCE FROM THE ECHP

David Cantarero () and Marta Pascual ()

Economics Bulletin, 2005, vol. 9, issue 9, 1-17

Abstract: In this paper, the effects of socioeconomic characteristics (gender, age, education level, marital status, income, occupational and health status, household size and social relationships) on individuals´ health status in Spain from 1994 to 2001 are analysed. The estimations are carried out using ordered probit models and new data from the whole waves of the European Community Household Panel (ECHP) have been used. The results indicate that personal characteristics, education level, income as well as health status and social relationships have strong influence on self-assessed health.
