Alison Booth () and Nick Carroll

Economics Letters, 2008, vol. 99, issue 3, 604-606

Abstract: Using unique survey data, we find a significant gap in the self-assessed health of Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians. The former have significantly worse health and almost half of the Indigenous health gap is explained by differences in economic variables.
