An Equity-based Proposal for the Evaluation of Health States

Carmen Herrero () and Antonio Villar ()

No 2012123, Working Papers from Fundacion BBVA / BBVA Foundation

Abstract: This working paper refers to the evaluation of health states when equity matters. We propose an evaluation formula that incorporates equity concerns from an equality of opportunity viewpoint and is applicable to categorical data, such as self-reported qualitative health states. An empirical illustration using Spanish data is provided.
