Analyzing the health status of the population using ordinal data

Abstract: We intend to estimate the health status of the people using a Gini kind index GO for measuring the inequality and a polarization indicator PO too. The both indices were applied for ordinal health data which were selected from three national representative samplings designed in the period 2003 - 2010 in Romania. The results evaluate the evolution level of the polarization and inequality phenomena in the health domain.
