Pauvreté, Egalité, Mortalité: Mortality (In)Equality in France and the United States

Janet Currie (), Hannes Schwandt () and Josselin Thuilliez ()

No 12935, CEPR Discussion Papers from C.E.P.R. Discussion Papers

Abstract: We develop a method to compare levels and trends in inequality in mortality in the United States and France in a similar framework. The comparison shows that while income inequality has increased in both the United States and France, inequality in mortality in France remained remarkably low and stable. In the United States, inequality in mortality increased for older groups (especially women) while it decreased for children and young adults. These patterns highlight the fact despite the strong cross-sectional relationship between income and health, there is no necessary connection between changes in income inequality and changes in health inequality.
