Accurately Measuring Health Over the Life Course

Working Papers, Center for Retirement Research at Boston College from Center for Retirement Research
This paper develops a new method of estimating rich, dynamic models of health based on multiple health measures available in the HRS. We apply these methods to investigate what generates the large socioeconomic gradient in health. Preliminary results suggest a large role for initial differences in health at age 50 that persist into old age.
